The popularization of science is aimed at approaching the general public to Science and Technology (S & T), particularly the young, awakening them to understanding science in a playful and everyday language through interactive science presentations conducted in schools, laboratories, museums and exhibition houses arranged for this purpose. Therefore, it is necessary linkage between laboratories to perform UFMA Exposure Science interactive public squares (plazas, parking and shopping excursion s academic) providing integration between science and technology and population, explaining the experiences in everyday language thus approaching the public of scientific and cultural. Nevertheless, the population realizes experience can be observing information experiments systems transmit scientific information contained in that or that experience. The realization of the experiences in public square is that science as cross walls and academic “Science goes to where the people be.” By the way we are promoting education, at the same time young people have contact with science hope this trouble can help youngest kidding with science and choose your professions and thus the science is accessible to everyone. Nevertheless the coordinators of the Laboratory “Ilha da Ciência” Department of Physics UFMA have worked on several projects for this purpose such as effective participation in SNCT held annually in Brazil, observation astronomical with title “Maranhão, Look at Sky”! Recently, this Laboratory acquired a unit for the Mobile Science to promove this activities itinerant exposure according results presentation in this Conference.
