This article seeks to explore the fascicles Sciencia para o Povo (Science for the People) as a publication of popularization of science in late nineteenth — century Brazil through the writings of Felix Ferreira. Editor, journalist and writer, Felix Ferreira wrote textbooks for the education of girls and boys used in the Lyceum of Arts and Crafts of Rio de Janeiro and adopted by the Court’s Public Instruction. He was also editor of the fascicles Sciencia para o Povo. As a missionary of scientific instruction as the basis of popular education, Ferreira was a popularizer of the sciences (vulgarizador das ciências). Through the publication Sciencia para o Povo, it is possible to follow some of the strategies of the popularizers of the period to acquire a space in the market of prints and in the educational debates.
