Research projects in Science Communication and Science Education
The Science Communication Group of the Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço (IA) has developed research projects in the field of science education and science communication. These projects are based on data already collected by the IA and by the Planetarium of Porto – Centro Ciência Viva (PP-CCV), such as the activities of the CoAstro project, but also on new proposals presented by the researchers.
Some examples of the work done can be found here (pp. 26-27). See also some of the publications in this field.
