Public Outreach in Brazil

Our BMSIS Scientist Dr. Ivan Glaucio Paulino Lima recently traveled to Brazil and spent 3 weeks engaged in public outreach activities. He talked about his role as microbiologist in the space mission Eu:CROPIS, a partnership between NASA and the German Space Agency, DLR., as well as the Space Settlement Design Contest, co-operated by NASA Ames Research Center, San Jose State University, and the National Space Society (NSS) for all students up to 12th grade (18 years old) from anywhere in the world. Dr. Paulino-Lima was featured on 4 local TV channels, 2 local newspapers and 1 live broadcast radio program. He also gave a lecture at the State University of Londrina, where he got his bachelor degree in biological sciences, and met with a few local public authorities. Below are some pictures of his recent activities in Brazil.
