Welcome to “A Spoonful Of Science”, the blog of CEBE

“A Spoonful of Science” is born as a Science Communication (SciComm) initiative to bridge between society and the scientific world that Spanish Scientists in Belgium (CEBE) represents. In short, to emphasize that understanding and enjoying science are not pleasures reserved for scientists only.

To meet a broad range of scientific fields and interests, “A Spoonful of Science” consists of two blog post types: “The Science Chronicles” seek to cover a scientific topic in depth or record a CEBE SciComm event whereas “CEBE answers” provide a short and accurate explanation written by scientists to open scientific questions. To promote the interaction between scientists and society, the general public has the option to send their questions about science through the blog’s website (see the tool on the right-hand side of this post).

If you are a scientist and you would like to explain your research to a broad audience or answer one of the many questions of our readers, please contact us on comunicacion.cientifica@cebebelgica.es. If writing is not your cup of tea, don’t worry! This is your blog too!! Science is also visual, so you can always help illustrating one of the blog entries.

Would you like to send us a question?

“Do you have a burning question that you would like a scientist to answer? Or a topic you would like to learn about? Send it to us!”
