23 April is recognised as the World Book and Copyright Day by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). On 4 April 2017, Scientix will publish eight great science books selected by its Scientix Ambassadors to give you the opportunity to read some or all of them before the World Book Day. Save the date and join us on this occasion to celebrate great literature in the field of science!
For the STEM Discovery Week 24 to 30 April 2017, teachers are invited to participate in a discussion in an open forum here about the selected books and share ideas on how they can be used in science lessons. Scientix will award the best ideas shared with this community.
The goal of the competition is twofold:
- To raise general awareness about science and scientific literacy through a community based approach and peer-reviewed exchange of information.
- To show how scientific literature can improve classroom discussions and activities.
You are welcome to use the forum here to introduce yourself and to get to know other colleagues interested in science literature. Scientix will use the discussion forum to inform you as soon as the selected books are made public on the web page on 4 April 2017. You will receive a notification by e-mail if you introduce yourself in the discussion thread.
