Scientific Fairy Tales

Once upon a time … a scientific fairy tale (OUAT) is a project aiming to communicate natural sciences through short stories, and thus encourage the dialogue between scientists and the public. It was created in 2016 by early career scientist from different countries and supported by artists, translators and educators who helped to make the stories lively and accessible.  The main product of the project -an eBook with a collection of short stories- is already available in several languages (English, German and Spanish).
As the project continues, it will be available in many more languages.
A second eBook is currently being prepared.
