Looking for ways to become more knowledgeable on current events in science? There are several excellent magazines that parents can read to increase their science knowledge base. These magazines are also great for older, middle school to high school students.
2. Popular Science
3. National Geographic
5. Sky & Telescope
6. Scientific American - A bit higher level than the ones above, but still written for a general, non-science audience.
I subscribe to a few of these and look forward to them every month! As soon as one arrives, I immediately thumb through it to see what it contains. It's like Christmas presents every month!
