Building a Science Culture

We believe science is essential to build a better future. Scientific awareness and science education help individuals to think critically, develop rational decision making skills and create a more tolerant society.

Science education and awareness need to be strengthened and prioritized in our society. Our Science 360º strategy focuses on this goal through outreach programs aimed at opinion leaders, students and the community at large. As a result of this commitment, we have created several initiatives to facilitate public understanding of science and its applications and to encourage conscientious discussion of science’s value and place in our society. The initiatives established include the Eureka Program, developing multimedia educational material, the hands-on workshop on genetic engineering for opinion leaders, the bus-mounted mobile laboratory ConCiencia, delivering science to rural areas, as well as ImaginaCiencia’s motivational short talks and the scientific publishing house Editorial Ciencia & Vida.
