Jennifer Leavey created Charged Magazine with one thought in mind — to create an online science magazine for people who don’t know much about science.
The magazine has featured the work of students with and without science backgrounds, with articles focusing on everything from how to celebrate DNA Day with a chocolate smoothie to the psychology of Facebook. Shorter articles (500 to 1,000 words) are preferable given the blog format of the website, Leavey added.
Charged will officially launch this fall, and while Leavey hopes that the venture will gain popularity among students, she would also like to see more faculty and staff members become engaged.
Leavey is currently looking for faculty, staff and student volunteers to contribute to writing, editing, designing, marketing and managing Charged.
“It would also be helpful to find someone who can help with the functionality of our website, as well as the coding,” she added.
Writing, sketch, photography and recording submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
