Interview with Isabel Abril

In 2005, coinciding with the World Year of Physics, a science communication project was born in the Summer School of the University of Alacant, “El Patio de la Ciencia”. It was aimed at children and teenagers and tried to bring science to them in an entretaining and funny way. The coordinator of the project is Isabel Abril, Full Professor of Applied Physics at the University of Alacant. In this interview she explains what science and the scientific method are and highlights the importance of basic science as guarantor of future applied science.
