Report on the Results:  Our estimate media impressions were 13,000 as our facebook community manager reported. Comparing to our unique attendance we reached approximately 1% of the people who got access to the information. Considering that the city's got a long way to go in science outreach, this event was successful and attendance was more than expected. One of the highlights was when an elementary school teacher came close to us to ask about ways to reach her students effectively, and we proposed a collaboration with her school so we can take our activities to them instead. In Ensenada, our city, this is the best way to reach the most people with effective results. Attendants loved the 2 m diameter inflatable moon that we propped up at the entrance, everyone took selfies and pictures at it. In conclusion, it was a successful event and definitely we will be doing it again next year!
