Astronomy Communication and Popularization in the Brazilian Amazonia: The Astronomy Nucleus of the Federal University of Pará. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís.

The Astronomy Nucleus of the Federal University of Pará is a science center located in the Brazilian Amazonia, dedicated to spread knowledge on Astronomy to the general public. Over the last ten years, this science center has promoted several activities, including astronomical observations, demonstrations with industrially manufactured and low cost material equipment, seminars, workshops, among others. We describe and discuss the role of the Astronomy Nucleus and other science centers dedicated to Astronomy communication and popularization in the Brazilian Amazonia.

Keywords : Astronomy; Amazonia; Science Communication and Popularization.
