About Ciência Viva and the Knowledge Pavilion
Ciência Viva was established in 1996 as an open program to promote alliances, public awareness of science and technology and fostering autonomous actions through the following three fundamental action tools:
- A support program, aimed at the experimental teaching of science and at the promotion of scientific education in the school. Ciência Viva elected the school as its intervention priority, focusing its efforts on strengthening the experimental teaching of science and on mobilizing the scientific community and its institutions to work towards the improvement of scientific education.
- National scientific awareness campaigns, fostering the creation of science associations and providing the population with the opportunity to make scientific observations and to establish a direct and personal contact with experts in different fields of knowledge.
- A National Network of Ciência Viva Centers, designed as interactive spaces aimed at creating an awareness of science among the population. Designed as interactive spaces for promoting science to the general population, but also as platforms of regional development – scientifically, culturally and economically – by establishing partnerships with the most important regional players.
The Pavilion of Knowledge at Parque das Nações is one of the Science Centers from the National Network and also the head office of Ciência Viva.
