Science in School Issue 22 Out Now!
19 March 2012
The latest issue of the free magazine Science in School is now available online and in print. As always, the European journal dedicated to science teachers and educators offers numerous interesting articles and activities for students.
Issue 22 takes a closer look at the real science behind forensics, and at how students can do genetic fingerprinting at school. In the same vein, an article explains how you can build your own microscope. In “Harnessing the power of the Sun”, you can find out how a tokamak fusion reactor works, while other articles include natural production of hydrogen by bacteria, global warming research in Antarctica, one space scientist’s passion for astronomy and a guide to build and launch your own paper rocket. You can also find out about the most recent European Union Contest for Young Scientists, at which the EIROforum members — including ESO — offered great prizes.
Science in School is published by EIROforum, a collaboration between eight European intergovernmental scientific research organisations, of which ESO is a member. The journal addresses science teaching both across Europe and across disciplines: highlighting the best in teaching and cutting-edge research.
You can find numerous articles as well as their translated versions in many European languages online. You can also volunteer to translate Science in School articles into your own language for publication online, please see the guidelines on the Science in School website.
