An example: The Principia magazine

In this video, Enrique Royuela describes the example of the Principia magazine, a Spanish science communication initiative.

An example of science communication: The Principia magazine.

Communicating science does not need to follow existing approaches and avenues, and creativity can play a major role. In this video, we discuss a successful example: an initiative that fuses traditional media – a magazine – with new approaches, such as creating card games to engage young people, or fusing art and science communication together to reach wider audiences.

Principia is also an example of how science and society can be connected, by talking about the histories of scientists that were persecuted during past wars, and by reflecting, as we did in the previous activity, on the relationship between science and society.
