My other main research interest is science education, specially physics and astronomy. I am particularly interested in the teaching of science in non-formal spaces, such as science museums, planetariums, astronomical observatories, among others.
Other topic of interest is the formation of teachers. My interest on this topic is not restricted to the academic point of view (research), but is also practical (taking part into / promoting initiatives). For instance, I was part of a project promoted by the INCT-A (Instituto Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia – Astronomia) to teach astronomy for teachers.
