Founded by Cincinnati educator and science writer Chris Anderson, this blog analyzes current events in science and makes the content relevant to students. Recent posts highlighted issues such as the future of the Environmental Protection Agency, microplastics in the ocean, and the tantalizing potential of the Hyperloop, a new proposed transit mode that aims to be as fast as a plane, cheaper than a train, and continuously available in any weather—all while emitting no carbon from the tailpipe. The blog content is most appropriate for the high school level (grades 9–12),though teachers of any level who love to learn about how science affects our daily lives will likely be intrigued by it. Use the posts as conversation starters in the classroom, or click on the Teacher Resources section to access “Explainers,” short explanatory documents about challenging topics such as Natural Selection and Types of Chemical Bonds.
