In an unprecedented experience, the Musée Itinerante Ponto UFMG has expanded its audience by bringing knowledge and entertainment to Minas Shopping, in the northeastern region of Belo Horizonte. Until Sunday, July 17, the structure stands at Entrance 3 of the shopping center, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. The visit is free.
An extension project, the traveling museum is designed to work interactively with different fields of science and technology with students and teachers of basic education from public and private schools, as well as communities in municipalities in Minas Gerais and other states in Brazil.
This time, the audience will be able to play with interactive experiences under a tent, and next to it, visit the truck adapted with five environments (Natural Energy Room, Forest Room, 3D Projection Room, Submarine Room and Awareness Room).
In an interview with TV UFMG, curator Tânia Costa and instructor at the Itinerant Museum Ponto UFMG Érica Menezes discuss the learning and fun that the attraction has to offer.
Next stop: SBPC
The Ponto UFMG touring Museum will travel to Brasilia on July 23, where it will be one of the attractions of SBPC Jovem, which is part of the 74th annual meeting of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC). Another stop, in October, will be in Cuiabá. The following month, the traveling museum will return to Brasilia to participate in the activities of the National Science and Technology Week.
