Any of you out there using Twitter? What about to follow education or science tweets?
Science tweets- short and sweet
Here’s a just few great accounts for you to follow…
@sciencemuseum to find out whats going on in the Museum, new events, competitions, thoughts, friendly chat
@lottolab the Science Museum’s resident lab, open neuroscience research going on within our very walls…
@scienceweekUK for loads of science & engineering events, going on right now!
@sciencenewsorg for breaking science news- from physics to medicine.
@wiredscience tweets Wired magazine’s science awesomeness (robot sharks with lasers- yes please).
@nysci the New York Hall of Science twitter account gives an interesting comparison to science learning and museums over here.
oh, and one I couldnt resist: @scitechFB who tweet, in their words ‘daily brain food of amazerific & fantacular science & technology updates from around the web’. Well, if you put it that way…
Do you have a favourite website (or three) to visit for science news and articles? We do! Here are our top five:
1) Antenna – our antenna gallery’s website features short science news stories which are updated daily, include expert opinions and open polls for you to contribute to. Very readable and great for your students to use when doing their research.
2) Popsci.com – really a lot like reading a magazine rather than just a site to research news stories, this is engaging and full of cool stories to explore with videos and amazing images.
3) Sciencenews.org - covering everything from astrophysics to neuroscience and even science news for kids, this is a great site for more in-depth articles.
4) National Geographic Daily News - nature news stories, with plenty of links to related articles and resources. Also worth checking out their blogs, covering travel, photography, green living and more.
5) New Scientist – science, tech, environment, health, opinions, everything is here. You can read headlines or get ahold of more technical articles. You do have to register (free) to access some of the stories though, and others are only available to paid subscribers.
Dive in! (And please do share your faves with us too!)
