On the 11th, 12th, and 13th of May, in Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores, the 10th edition of the SciComPT 2022 congress was held, and back to in-person format.
This is an annual science communication congress that brings together science communicators from all over the world and whose theme for this edition was “Stop, listen and act: reflect on the past to build the future”. The diversified program comprises several moments of sharing experiences and a day entirely dedicated to training.
This year, RAEGE-Az was present, for the first time, with the theme “RAEGE-Az and the impact of science dissemination” presented by our science communicator, Raquel Ribeiro, who was part of the Media and Society session. During the congress, at ExpoSciCom, the VLBI simulator was also presented, which allows the explanation of the main technique used in the RAEGE Station, in a basic and visual way.
During the exhibition, Raquel discussed the initiatives developed throughout the year by RAEGE-Az, their scope, and everything that was developed in social media during the period in question and the future to continue this mission.
There were three intense days that had the best possible outcome: the Award for the Best Long Presentation of the Media and Society session!
