Young Tassie Scientists (YTS) initiative brings scientists to schools to interact with students from different grades during National Science Month in Australia. Natalia intends to bring to the students a little of what MOSAiC is. She has developed an activity that can be adaptable for other school opportunities as well, as they become available.

As part of her outreach with schools in Australia, she intends to develop a Lesson Plan entitled: "Arctic and the Southern Ocean: Connected on their differences." During the schools visits for Young Tassie Scientists, teachers who like to include interactive teaching methods will have an opportunity to get to know Natalia's acitivities. Material will be offered to teachers directly and on other distribution channels. Since the lesson plan will be produced in English, it will also be provided to CIRES Education and Outreach Team to distribute over their channels.

Natalia also documented her MOSAiC School and Arctic impression on blog of the University of Tasmania, Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies. Further, she shared her experience in female scientists-blog (in portuguese) and in radio interviews with ABC radio Hobart togeher with her fellow MOSAiC Ambsassador Lisa Craw.

In May 2020, Natalia gave an online interview for the Russian television 5-TV together with hin MOSAiC Ambassador colleagues Igor and Tania for a special issue on the International Day of Polar Scientists.
