Web Site of the Week: Scientific American: 60-Second Science
Science in a minute? Sure, why not! Scientific American is offering up these bite-sized offerings that give a brief intro to a range of science-related topics and investigations. New, minute-long offerings are added every weekday, and recent additions have included “Fly Cells Divide by the Clock,” “Twitter Reveals Language Geographic Distribution,” and “Bed Bugs Bollixed by Bean.” Visitors can sign up to learn about new additions via their RSS feed or iTunes. These short audio blurbs could easily be used in any number of classrooms to keep students engaged. It’s a great resource and one that can be used with a range of learners. [KMG]
