The paper presents the interactive exhibition called “Walking with giants”, promoted by the Advanced Campus of the Farroupilha Federal Institute which has two concluded editions up to now. The main objective of the activity is to promote the popularization of the science among primary students, complementing teaching-learning process of 6-to-9-year-old children. The exhibition allows an immersion in Pleistocene Megafauna of State of Rio Grande do Sul, and its thematic aims to enrich the history and the regional identity, especially in a context where most children have never visited museums or exhibitions. The event was built in an interactive way, composed by a cave for rock painting, exhibit of rocks and minerals, interactive map with the sounds of the animals that lived in each place, composition of carapace of Glyptodon, usage of thematic digital games and other activities. More the 630 children have already joined the exhibitions but there are more schools waiting for the next edition. Therefore, it’s being possible to make geoscience popular with emphasis on the regional context in an interactive, dynamic and playful way.
