Science textbooks ‘should be culturally relevant’
The Mexican newspaper La Reforma reports that Fierro — winner of last year’s Latin American Prize for the Communication of Science and Technology — will help to redress the balance by coordinating a new series of books on the popularisation of science.
“Science is hard work because you have to make an effort to understand it, but part of this difficulty can be solved by using accessible examples and everyday language,” she said. “That is why it is so important that books on the popularisation of science are made in Mexico for Mexican readers.”
