Luís Azevedo Rodrigues will “lead” at Expolab – Centro Ciência Viva dos Açores for a few days

Luís Azevedo Rodrigues, director of the Centro Ciência Viva de Lagos, is from today until Sunday, the 12th, at Expolab, in the Azores, teaching how to make a “Digital Approach” to science communication.

The paleontologist based in Lagos will promote training in Science Communication and Digital Technologies, which will culminate with the lecture “Dinosaurs: New Techniques, Old Myths”.

This is an «innovative collaboration» with Expolab – Centro Ciência Viva dos Açores, which «aims to explore the frontiers of scientific dissemination and digital education, integrated into the national initiative “Hoje Quem Manda Sou Eu”», according to the CCV lacobrigense.

«The intensive training, led by Luís Azevedo Rodrigues, is intended to imbue the Expolab and Azores Science Center Network teams with advanced knowledge in scientific communication and technological integration», he adds.

Activities planned in the training:

– Training in Science Communication and AI: Workshop on the application of Artificial Intelligence in educational environments and the use of digital tools to engage different audiences.

– Production of 3D Models and Photogrammetry: Practical sessions on the creation of three-dimensional models, a technique that CCVL has been perfecting over the years, and which it now shares with Expolab.

– 360º Virtual Routes: Presentation of spherical records that allow complete visualizations of spaces and areas, enriching the experience of visitors and students with layers of additional information.

– Evolution and Conservation of Biodiversity: Participation in the Visible Ape Project, with the production of 3D models for educational use and scientific dissemination, emphasizing the connection between humans and other primates.
