Science Bulletins

The American Museum of Natural History hosts visualizations and stories of recent developments in  earth science, climate change, biodiversity, human biology, evolution, and astrophysics.  See visualizations for learning about sea ice changes, coral reefs, desertification in Africa, origins of our moon, Mars, invasive species, undomesticated horses, human imagination, our genes and geography, cancer’s evolutionary tree, facial expressions, a “wiring diagram” of the brain, human longevity, and more. Much of the material requires reading and so will be more appropriate for older students, though curiosity is of course a great motivator to read more. 😉 (Thanks again to Kirk Winters for pointing this out–a long time ago he did email me permission to “cannibalize” his newsletter on this blog.)
