Exposition Celularium - "A viagem pela Célula" 
During the National Week of Science and Technology (October 19th to 25th) a science exposition was held in one shopping mall of Ribeirão Preto. The exposition exhibited a video at Celularium, in a full dome projection, 180 degrees, about the animal cell. The visitor was taken to a three-dimensional journey where it was possible to learn about the most complex network of organelles that comprise the structural unit of living things.

A trip inside the cell showed the plasma membrane, cytoplasm, ribosomes, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex. And then the visitor had the opportunity to recognize some of the structures seen in the video in microscope through histological sections and in models.
