A method for visualization of scientific popularization
The expansion of scientific popularization in Brazil is strategically desirable and information design presents itself as an important tool, despite the lack of academic studies in their relationship. In this article we address an information visualization method for science popularization that has been proposed in the classroom of the course of Visual Communication Design, over the last four years, with the support of scientists from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The work of the students consisted in animated infographics of approximately one minute about complex scientific subjects, designed with scientists advices. The results show positive evidences of this method, suggesting its significance into professional practice.
