Science News is convenient because it comes out every two weeks and gives students something to look forward to. They see something on the news and then very shortly they’ll see an article in Science News and they get the science behind it, not just how media portrays it and not just what they heard on Facebook or some social media. It really authenticizes what they’re doing.”

“Science News helps me to tie in course material with relevant and current examples. Our textbooks are bulky and outdated, and the Educator Guides and print magazine help me save time trying to find ways to pique students’ interest in science.”

Wandesha Traylor, Wossman High School, Monroe, LA

“I absolutely love the articles that have multiple reading levels! Many of our struggling readers are encouraged when their readings are the ‘same’ as everyone else’s, albeit on a lower reading level.”

Tandi Steffens, Grandview R-2 High School, Hillsboro, Missouri
