Over the last few years several initiatives have been undertaken in Brazil and worldwide for the popularization of science, especially by research institutions and interactive museums that have sought to broaden their operation scope. Embrapa Food Technology, located in the municipality of Rio de Janeiro / Brazil has developed several actions to disseminate their activities which focus on popularizing aimed at Food Science and technology (FS&T). Aiming to develop dissemination actions and cooperate with new dynamic learning, Embrapa established a partnership with Technical College of Federal Rural University (CTUR) and Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Rio de Janeiro - Campus Pinheiral financing by FAPERJ - Carlos Chagas Filho Research Support Foundation to produced animations related to food processing and held a symposium to discuss the teaching of Food S&T in Rio de Janeiro state. These animations were intended to be used as supplementary education to fix concepts of FS&T. The symposium "Teaching of FS&T in the state of Rio de Janeiro: is there anything to innovate?" was focused on teaching professionals and those who are willing to spread knowledge in this area, bringing together 60 professionals from all over the State.
