To keep pace with the changing nature of science, the American Museum of Natural History developed Science Bulletins, an innovative Web site that makes current science events and research accessible to the public. Science Bulletins presents the latest developments in the fields of astrophysics, human biology, Earth science, and conservation, through feature videos that highlight scientists in the field, cutting-edge data visualizations of Earth and the cosmos, and snapshots of the natural world. The Science Bulletins Web site provides in-depth coverage of current stories as well as an archive of past stories.
An educator’s resource guide provides teachers with ways to incorporate Science Bulletins into their science curriculum. These activities correlate to the National Science Education Standards. Discussion questions, links to related NASA resources, and links to our own Resources for Learning site offer effective uses for the compelling videos, data visualizations, and interactives that will kindle students’ interest in science, stimulate inquiry, and support in-depth student research.
Science Bulletins focuses on four main content areas.
