Brain Buskers is an initiative developed by the University of Coimbra in Portugal. The project aims to join science with the daily and cultural life of the city in order to engage local communities. Its informal nature promotes the understanding of biochemistry in everyday life, demystifying the image of scientists and increasing scientific literacy. The project has also helped to inspire scientists with the skills and confidence to hold and inspire a passing audience with science.
