As part of National Science and Technology Week, this week, from Monday 5th to Friday the 9th, Fidene/Unijuí is promoting the second edition of Science for All, in partnership with the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Unlike the inaugural edition, the event will take place completely virtual, with an extensive program drawn up from mentorship projects developed at the university.
The Vice President of Graduate Studies, Research and Extension at Unijuí, Professor Fernando Jaime Gonzalez, explained that “Science for All is a large umbrella that allows extension projects to showcase their products to the community and also to develop specific activities,” noting that the main objective of the event is to popularize science. Making a body of scientific knowledge available to the community in a simple way that allows easy understanding.
As pointed out by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, the event is the second largest platform for scholarly publication in the University, which involves more student production. The first is Salão do Conhecimento, which this year will take place from October 26-29, also online. “It is important to highlight that Science for All is an exciting stage for academics. We have about 150 colleagues on research and extension projects, who are challenged to communicate what they are doing,” he emphasized.
Professor Edson Louise Pedwin, event coordinator, noted that the first edition of “Science for All” took place in 2019. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was not possible to fully implement it in 2020. In the past year, discussions have taken place around artificial intelligence and the knowledge hall. on the same subject. Unijuí promoted various lectures, such as the one with the Secretary of State for Innovation, Science and Technology, Luís Lamb.
Science for All Unijuí 2 begins with project approval in 2019, which has been submitted to CNPq, in the National Science and Technology Week notice. “Our main goal is to spread science to students and educators in Ijuí and the region,” Padoin emphasized, noting that the expectation is to expand the audience participating in the online event.
The virtual science fair Science for All Unijuí 2 can be followed on Unijuí’s Youtube channel. The full schedule, with the activities carried out by the extension projects, can be checked at bit.ly/cienciasparatodos. On the same page, schools can register for the workshops held by Salão do Conhecimento, until the end of this month.
