Espaço Ciencia Viva

The New Idea
Bazin dreams of changing science education in the Rio de Janeiro State by creating a place where people can experience science and its uses. In order to promote science in Brazil, Bazin believes that the best means is to make it come alive. He wants to bring science to the people; he wants science to go beyond the labs and the books. Ultimately, Bazin envisions science as a powerful tool that makes people think.
