So what is The Science Basement?

We are a group of scientists in training, who love communicating about the work we do.

Science is what brings us together, individuals and communities working to understand the world around us as it really is. Albert Einstein once said, ‘Science is the century-old endeavour to bring together by means of systematic thought the perceptible phenomena of this world into as thoroughgoing an association as possible.’

We are enthusiastic about science writing, journalism, and outreach. We want to discuss new ideas, research topics and new knowledge generated by scientists, and broadcast it to a broader audience. We try to make complicated ideas simple.

Science is also a job and a career. TSB is a project aiming to show how science is done from the scientists' perspective, especially to those who have never actually met one. We want to show science as it is: from the trenches, or perhaps more accurately, as it’s like from the basement.

We are The Science Basement.
