Science-me a Story is a writing competition that was born in 2018 with the aim of promoting scientific outreach in a fun and engaging way appropriate for primary school children. The ultimate goal of the contest is to promote the scientific spirit and inspire the next generation that will later build our future. We hope to achieve this through the communication of scientific achievements, findings, methods, and anecdotes in the form of short stories. This initiative is sponsored by Fundación Lilly and has the support of Principia, the University of Liverpool and the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester.

Science-me a Story book

On the 10th of November at the Instituto Cervantes of Madrid together with Lilly Foundation, we presented the book Science-me a Story that compiles the awarded stories from the first three editions of the contest in both English and Spanish. The book is available for free on this link.
