The award-winning Today’s Science database’s featured issue—2019: A Year in Science—spotlights scientific advances from the past year that increased our knowledge of nature and, in some cases, of ourselves. With A Year in Science, students can take a look back at the major discoveries and developments of 2019, in fields such as climate change, animal behavior, genetic engineering, health, human evolution, black holes, and more, and test their knowledge with the related crossword puzzle. Each article is distilled from major scientific news sources and peer-reviewed journals and written in easy-to-understand language.
In addition, for the first time ever, each year’s “Year in Science” roundup going back to 2005 is collected together under “Support Materials” on the home page. Students can gain more insight into the scientific world by easily exploring how scientific trends have changed from year to year, discovering recurring issues and themes, and following the advances and discoveries that were made within a specific time period.
