For this particular project, we utilize the publication model that consists in a fascicle that is recycled and read several times in order to reach the largest number possible of people. In this case, we are talking of a fascicle with 24 pages that is published in a co-edition effort with the ―Sistema de Transporte Colectivo Metro del Gobierno del DF‖ that is the public transportation system —subway— in Mexico City and the UNAM, with the economic support for the printing by Teléfonos de México. Given the fact that nearly 40% of the Mexican population does not read, not even a single book in a year, the main objective of the project was to raise their interest in reading and in particular in reading scientific material, at the same time making approachable to the population with less economic resources, fundamental scientific topics, for it is the population with less economic resources the one that uses the subway as means of transportation. So it was through the Speedy Science Fascicle that we are making inroads in the less economically favored segment of the Mexican population by given them access to fascicles that will complement their education in diverse scientific topics, thus widening and deepening their scientific culture.
