Famelab Portugal - Winner 2012 - Filipa Oliveira

Taking part in FameLab was a professional challenge and an addition to my training in dissemination and communication of science. The structure of the competition and the informal and fun environment between all players provided a very enriching experience. When I won in the final presentation I felt I should continue this mission to convey science to audiences of different ages.

Communicating science is one of my passions in life! I feel happiness and pleasure when I go into action. Therefore, I continue to work in this area, promoting science where it is less discussed.

Currently I am also PhD student in Science Education – a branch of physics at the University of Coimbra.
