Difusión y Transferencia


I am deeply committed to science communication, and I had participated in Ciencia al Tiro (which means Science Immediately!; www.cienciaaltiro.cl), a program that seeks to teach and enhance STEM learning to kids from the most vulnerable places of Valparaiso, since 2016. With Ciencia al Tiro we are making audiovisual material that has been selected for transmission in Chilean open broadcasting TV during the current pandemic at TV Educa Chile channel as "La Alegría de la Ciencia".
