Ciência Informativa – Informative Science


Brazilian Science Blog: A Month in English

The ASM Student Chapter at the University of São Paolo runs the blog "Ciência Informativa – Informative Science". 

The organizers are undergraduate and graduate students interested in scientific communicaton and dissemination. To advance general scientific knowledge, they publish an article each Thursday that explores a science-related topic - from nutrition to transgenic mosquitos that control Dengue disease. 

During the month of June, all of the posts from the blog were written in English. The month was devoted to microbes - where they are from, who they are, and what they do.
