equilibrium

Hello and welcome to EquilibriUM, a project through the University of Michigan's Michigan Science Writers.

EquilibriUM will be a printed magazine featuring content from across STEAM, but we'll have additional online content too including biosketches of contributors, blog posts regarding updates, resources, and more!

Keep checking back for more as we get everything set up, read more about our goals, and feel free to reach out to us!

Submissions are open!

Send us your science articles, editorials, illustrations, and photography! Click here for more details and we can't wait to see all the cool content you're making.

Print media's not dead

People still buy from physical bookshops and read proper print media rather than online content, according to this survey. What better time to see your work irl!

STEAM vs STEM

Science, technology, engineering, and medicine - where does art play into the mix? These hard sciences use design, language arts (communication), and history or culture to set up context and share the challenges involved in STEM. Including these components makes each study more holistic, integrated, and fascinating!

Science for all ages

You don't have to be a Ph.D. candidate to be curious about how the world works! By including a Kids Corner in our magazine, we want to bring fun experiments to little hands. What about the world fascinated you when you were young? Remember any activities from elementary classrooms? Share your activities and experiences with us!

Mistakes can be beautiful

This microscope image is from a failed experiment. But it looks so cool, right?! Check out that mitotic spindle!

Share your scientific successes and failures with us!

Draw your research

Infographics are great ways to show and tell your research! Check out how this non-conventional journal is sharing science.

#engincomm and #techcomm

We hear a lot about #scicomm, but there's so much more than scientific research going on. Engineering and technological fields should get that same training in communication and attention in the media.
