Promoting or attending partner institution events is an excellent strategy for popularizing science. Between 2010 and 2018, 28 thousand people participated in our regionally-held events; participants were from municipalities in the Middle Solimões region and more recently, we held scientific exhibitions in the capital city of Manaus. We have also participated in fairs, events and exhibitions promoted by our partners such as EXPOT & C, held annually by the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications (MCTIC) during the Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society for the Advancement of Science (SBPC).
