Small Science

Andrew, who just launched happier.com, thought we’d enjoy hearing about the Small Science Collective whose intention it is to get everyone thinking about and communicating science through cheap and handy one page zines, (like the one pictured on the left ).  He read about this on Discover’s The Loom.

From the Small Science site: “These zines and pamphlets are distributed in subways, benches, coffee shops, and any place someone might least expect them.  Perhaps catching the attention of strangers who might what to learn something new about ants, spirals, food, or genetics? Whatever else, it is at least something to read while you wait for the bus. Pick one up, print one out here, read it, and leave it somewhere random for some unsuspecting stranger to pick up and learn something new. The science is yours to share.”

 

  • I love it! What a great way to get science to the people. Scattering seeds of knowledge like this will surely plant a little curiosity with some people.
