23 April has been recognized as the World Book and Copyright Day by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). On 4 April 2017, Scientix published eight great science books selected by its Scientix Ambassadors to give everyone the opportunity to read some (or all) of them before the World Book Day.
Furthermore, for the STEM Discovery Week (24 to 30 April, 2017), teachers were invited to participate in a discussion in an open forum about the selected books and share ideas on how those can be used in science lessons.
The goal of the competition was twofold: (1) To raise general awareness about science and scientific literacy through a community based approach and peer-reviewed exchange of information and (2) to show how scientific literature can improve classroom discussions and activities.
While the competition is closed now, the discussions and all the literary picks are still available in the Scientix website. Choose a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics-related book and get some inspiration!
