Mentoring Program

The program

of Mentoring of the Brazilian Network of Journalists and Science Communicators

Writing about science requires a lot of preparation on the part of reporters and editors. However, journalism courses — at most Brazilian universities — do not prepare their students to cover scientific topics. This lack of preparation, unfortunately, affects the quality of science coverage we see in Brazil.

In an effort to encourage journalism students and early career journalists to have more contact with science coverage, the Brazilian Network of Journalists and Science Communicators (RedeComCiência) created its Mentoring Program for young journalists. Journalism students and recently graduates had the opportunity to work with expert reporters with extensive experience in science coverage.
