of science are invited to visit the new and improved Science Bulletin
Website sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH),
for breaking news on astrophysics, Earth sciences, and biodiversity.
The bulletins present current science news stories through a host
of interactive videos (5- to 7-minute video stories that follow
scientists into the field), compelling photographs, graphics (using
3-D computer models), and interactive data visualizations (using
NASA satellite data) that the Museum says will “bring science alive
for adults and children alike.” AMNH is an NSTA Institute online
partner. You can visit the Science Bulletin website at http://sciencebulletins.amnh.org.
