Science Nation

Science Nation is a free, weekly online magazine from the National Science Foundation that examines scientific breakthroughs and new discoveries about our planet. Each week, correspondent Miles O'Brien (of CNN fame) examines diverse topics including an artificial retina that can help the blind to see, "green" gasoline, the mysteries of tornadoes and, this week, a "fembot" that has helped researchers learn more about America's "extreme" bird, the male Sage Grouse. The reports are compelling, not intimidating, and parents/teachers may want to introduce their children/students to this resource as a way to spur creative ideas for their science fair projects.
