Mon Apr 07, 2014 5:06 PM in iPad app from NSF
I have this app on my iPad, and I get the Science360 email every morning - I read it instead of the newspaper over morning coffee (I'd have to go outdoors to get the newspaper, and I'm just not awake enough for that!!) I love the breadth and diversity of the site, and you can go as deep as you'd like. Definitely one to check out. ~ kathy g

I have not read the book yet - but I'm intrigued. I teach at an independent school in the US. We have been teaching Physics First, but as the demographic has changed (and I don't think we've adapted our teaching with it); it's not working as well as earlier. Your discussion request fits my goals, I think. I have recently became the department chair, and revamping our 9th grade science is my fi...

5 Indispensable Tool of Student Research
I liked the book when I bought it last fall; I was hooked by spring, and totally in love with it after one of the author's workshops. Written for students it is an excellent and appropriate guide for all levels of Student STEM research whether in curriculum units or full-blown projects. Great ways to discuss the nature of science, and terrificu tools that lead the students to develop all the skills we want them to develop. My research students are buying this as a "course text" (early reviews from them support my own).
