SCIENCE

COMMUNICATION

Mafalda believes science should be available to everyone. Thus, scientists should step down their ivory tower and share their knowledge and amazing findings with the public.

Making science accessible and understandable promotes a more educated population, which has more trust in scientists and makes better choices for our society. With a worrying increase of anti-science movements and general disbelief in science, Mafalda decided to share her knowledge and make science friendlier.

Mafalda hopes to be able to change people's perceptions about scientists and to be an inspiration for aspiring scientists.
