"String theory" is an educative fanzine that demystifies the String Theory for non-physicists. It is made as a series of simple steps, each one followed by an illustration that clarifies the concept represented.
String Theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. It describes how these strings propagate through space and interact with each other. In short, it is the current "Theory of Everything" - this is why we saw important to try to simplify it's concepts for ordinary people to understand.
The project is part of an on-going collaboration with students of Faculty of Physics, University of Zagreb, Croatia. The fanzine will be used as an educational tool in science workshops for teenagers throughout next year. It has been traduced to Spanish, English and Croatian.
