The Rede SciComPT organizes the SciComPt Congress annually, where it seeks to show, debate and value the best that is done in science communication in Portugal. After the cancellation of the SciComPt 2020 Congress scheduled for the Azores (7-8 May) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SciComPt Network decided to hold the #SciComPt2020 Congress in an online digital format. Thus, from May 7 to June 18, the SciComPT Network’s YouTube channel will show LIVE keynote lectures, panels and debates and also the daily publication of selected works for the original SciComPt 2020 Congress.
One of the works selected for presentation in the form of a video was the “Lab in a Box” project. The challenge posed to us by the organizers of the SciComPt 2020 Congress was to describe the origin of the project, its target audience, its impact and the way the COVID-19 pandemic has affected it, all in 3 minutes! “Lab in a Box” accepted the challenge.
