The “Madcap Science” science communications platform was created in early 2013, born from noticing the alarming disparity between the information about STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) careers and the young people accessing it and perusing an interest in those fields.
Madcap Science has evolved considerably over the past two years. Starting life as “Flashmob Science” with the initial aim of providing hands on STEM education outreach. That core aim is still the same. We believe with a bit of elbow grease and a constant thirst for understanding we will reach that stage eventually.
However, at present we are content writing informative articles, using social media and collaborating with organizations and individuals alike. Actively promoting those who are already able to do that. We cover the work industry are carrying out to make their fields accessible, new innovation and all of the little bits in-between.
Madcap Science’s main aim is to make all aspects of STEM accessible. Extrapolating the most cutting edge concepts and transferring them into an engaging, understandable and memorable format.
