At TheScienceBreaker, PhD students, postDocs, lecturers, professors and every researcher working in the academic environment (the Breakers) can comment, explain and discuss scientific articles taken from different scientific fields. To do so, the Breaker writes a lay summary (the Break) of the selected publication, which can then be used as an input to dialogue with the broad public about the latest scientific developments. Importantly, the laypeople will be empowered of the possibility to propose articles for Break-drafting and, by participating to the discussions, they will help scientists to explore and learn from the world outside of their ivory tower.
Importantly, at TheScienceBreaker, we believe that the dialogue between scientists and citizens will promote the public engagement with science and technology. To achieve this, don't hesitate to join the discussion in the comment sections below each published Break.
