July/August Issue Highlights
As students and teachers head back to school, they’ll all be hitting the books to learn and enrich their lives. This issue focuses on several features that can help them on their journeys.
AAAS and Subaru are teaming up again this year to donate more than 40,000 award-winning science books in August to fill classroom shelves through the Subaru Loves Learning initiative. As part of this initiative, Subaru retailers all over the United States will donate books to schools in their communities. Subaru Loves Learning is part of Subaru’s broader Subaru Love Promise, which is the company’s promise to do right by the communities in which it operates.
Our feature on Back-to-School with Science NetLinks provides some information about the kinds of offerings Science NetLinks and AAAS have to help teachers and students make their next year of science a successful one. There are lessons, student-friendly pieces like podcasts and interactives, video collections, and more to help busy teachers and students navigate the school year.
Our Read-Around-A-Theme this month centers on the science of the eternally fascinating owls. You can use this guide to enrich your understanding of our feathered friends and to discover how many species of owls there are, how long it is believed that they have been around, and even how they hunt their prey. You can then head to your local library and check out some of the books we feature.
As in every issue, you’ll find our monthly selection of books, media, and website reviews and our listings of upcoming science television programming.
