About 'De Vonk'

‘De Vonk’ is the platform of E.T.S.V. Scintilla to share semi-scientific content and is edited by a group of enthousiastic members.


On the 1st of May 1982, a trial edition was published of what was to become a monthly magazine. The goal of these publications was to share information regarding ongoing scientific research, internships and excursions with the members of E.T.S.V. Scintilla. Over the years, other topics also became more common, such as the activities of committees regarding both education and leisure. Years later, publications came quarterly with a circulation of ~800 copies, the last edition of which was published in November 2019.

In 2019 a transition was made to this online platform to be able share current matters and to continue appealing to the audience of ‘De Vonk’.

An overview of the digital publications can be found here.
