1… WHO AND WHY ARE WE HERE?
History of Science and Technology - EPMagazine (EPM) is an educational-scientific periodical born in 2002, made jointly by European high schools’ and universities' teachers and (mainly) students aging up to 24 years old. EPM is also an international journal that presents acceptable (targeting the scientific divulgation) papers and reviews in all areas of History of Science and Technology (HST).
The magazine is widely indexed and has an international editorial board made by a few of single autonomic Institutional Editorial Boards working cooperatively among them. This History of Science and Technology - European Pupils Magazine letter is sent to about 4,500 individuals who directly or indirectly have expressed an interest in the contribution of history of science to theoretical, curricular and pedagogical issues in science teaching, and/or interests in the promotion of innovative and more engaging and effective teaching of HST. The note is sent on to international HST, science teaching and students lists.
The note seeks to serve the diverse international community of HST scholars and teachers as well as students aging 14 to 24 by disseminating publications that connect to concerns of the HST community.
Contributions to the note (publications, conferences etc.) are welcome and should be sent direct to the Italian editor, epmagazine.it@gmail.com.
The purposes of EPM are mainly both scientific and educational ones. In fact, following its activities, the students learn:
  • how to perform a scientific research and how it works;
  • how a scientific magazine is produced and published;
  • how to improve personal managing skills in ICT, communication, English language, and so on;
  • how to write scientific contributions and to develop other spoken European languages and, mainly, the communicative English;
  • to work in national and international teams for common targets and communicate yearly at an ordinary meeting joining other students ad teachers of the EPM project.
We use to publish three recorded issues per year:
I.S.S.N.                       1722-6953      web edition
     I.S.S.N.                       1722-6961      printed edition
    I.S.S.N.                      1723-9001      Multimedia CD

5… CALL TO STUDENTS
By an incredible technological progress and amazing discoveries, every day we get up so immersed in technology, that we don't realize the little miracle happening when we turn on the lights, open the water tap or make a coffee. Behind every little action there is a long unknown history. Often we forget the importance of someone, in the past, who sacrifices everything for what he believed in.
