A story sketching session on plant biotechnology was organised by CiB Portugal – Centre for Biotechnology Information – during the open day of the Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica, (ITQB). After a conversation about research, the visitors worked on sketches with the guidance of a plant biotech researcher and a sketching guide. This activity increased knowledge on ag biotech and supported better science-based decision making. The audience was active and shared their experience on social media. The sketches were then exhibited together with those from the previous edition to celebrate the International Plant Fascination Day.
