Science as news

Science news can be found in print, on the radio, and on television. Spending time reading science stories is good preparation for writing one’s own science news articles. Here is a list of science news outlets. Since I’ve been giving students this assignment, the links have changed. Many news outlets, including USA Today and The Boston Globe, no longer have a designated “science” page. In many cases, typing “science” into the search box will bring up science stories.
