Especially for Students
Today’s Science bridges the gap between the science taught in the classroom
and real-world discoveries. Updated twice a week, Today’s Science gives
in-depth explanations of important advances in biology, chemistry, environmental science, space, physics, and technology, and features interviews
with the scientists doing the research. An 18-year backfile lets students see
how one scientific advance leads to another; the stories focus on the questions scientists ask themselves, and in doing so, reinforce science educators’
traditional emphasis on the scientific method.
