Quo is a fantastic example of how to make science interesting. It is a shame that it currently exists only in Spanish and Mexican editions, as we feel that it or a magazine very similar would be a sure-fire hit here in the UK (Done, please look up Wonderpedia magazine).
When we learn about science, here in the UK, we get it in a very second-hand manner. There is maybe a couple of pages in a newspaper, or a brief report on the news – never enough space to fully explore a subject. The number of different processes it goes through to get to you, the audience, is impressive – research to journal or press conference, to journalist via press liaison, to you – but it means that important details can be lost and interpretation placed upon a story that is far from accurate. The best way to avoid this is to either read the original journals, a costly and frankly boring task that isn’t really open to those who aren’t experts in that area, or to read a popular science mag, such as Science, New Scientist or Nature. Even these can be a tad boring however, and there is a distinct lack of a science mag for the masses.
Quo is a colourful, engaging and well designed example of science communication, with stories given enough space to fully explore what they mean and their potential implications. Now please, please release an English version! NB
