PLaNCK! is a new scientific magazine for kids, made by a young editorial board in collaboration with the University of Padua.
It’s an exchange between science and kids, university and research.
It’s a “taste” of the 80 pages of the magazine!
A year ago, PLaNCK! was only an idea. Now it’s becoming a reality, thanks to all those who have believed in this project, and offered their support!
PLaNCK! will issue every four months, starting from now (January 2014). It will consist of 80 pages full of articles, games, experiments, and curiosities… all strictly scientific, and simplified for children.
PLaNCK! isn’t just a science magazine. It’s not just a fun game, either. It is an innovative project in Italy’s publishing industry, made by a team of young people. This project aims at connecting university and research with the citizenry, starting from the early stages of learning - namely primary schools.
PLaNCK! is written both in Italian and in English. All it takes to switch languages is flipping the magazine upside down! This way, PLaNCK! can be used as supplementary teaching support, helping students familiarise themselves with English - the official language of science.
PLaNCK!’s contents are written by a team of people with different skills and multidisciplinary backgrounds. Our contents are written in collaboration with a professional scientific committee, composed by Professors from the Departments of Physics and Astronomy, and Chemical Sciences of the University of Padua. And that’s not all…
Children, too, are directly involved in this project, and help us improve it.
