The production of knowledge through outreach activities, is done by exchanging systematized, academic and popular knowledge, resulting in the democratization of knowledge, effective community participation in activities of the university and a resultant production of confrontation with reality. In an attempt to meet these outreach guidelines the Physics Institute of UFRJ has conducted courses for teachers of elementary and middle school, provided educational and scientific divulgation materials, created applications and videos, and participated in events of scientific dissemination such as Conhecendo a UFRJ (knowing the UFRJ) and the Semana Nacional de Tecnologia (National Technology Week).
