SciVis: Making Science Visible

SciVis project is developing new and improving existing interactive information tools for better understanding of science and technology. Even though the main target group is primary and secondary school students, the results of this project are intended to reach a wider population with the implementation of public programmes and activities.

Project Description

Two main objectives of the SciVis project are interactive information tools for informing the public about scientific and technological innovations, and a new training concept for future science and technology teachers, their studies and later professional development.

During the implementation of this project, the Centre for the Promotion of Science was responsible for designing and developing the project website and for the application of interactive tools in the CPN club during its activities and events. These interactive tools are designed to bring science and technology closer to the wider population, especially to young boys and girls, by being part of a series of creative activities such as popular-science games and online courses, interactive exhibits, mobile applications, specific software developed for interactive screens, and science camps.
