Welcome to the SB&F Editor's Blog. I am Maria Sosa, Editor-in-Chief of SB&F. Through this blog I hope to interact with the SB&F community and post news and information related to science books, videos, authors, opportunities and other topics of interest to our readers. I hope you find the blog useful and entertaining. Please, join the conversation by posting a comment on our Facebook page. I'd love to hear from you!

Stop by the SB&F booth to learn about these other AAAS programs too: 

The Science Inside Alcohol Project - The Science Inside Alcohol Project, funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), is developing an interactive, Web-based science and health curriculum for middle school students and their families on how alcohol affects their bodies. The project, part of “The Science Inside” series from AAAS, will also provide a plain language booklet for parents. It has three core goals: create an interactive alcohol education module, help young teenagers make better choices, and explain “the science inside alcohol.” 

Science Netlinks – Science NetLinks offers free tools and resources for teachers — a myriad of web resources designed to truly enhance their science lessons. Science NetLinks is constantly adding new material and updates.  

Science Update – Quirky, entertaining and informative, Science Update is a daily, 60-second feature covering the latest discoveries in science, technology and medicine. Produced by AAAS, Science Update has reported on thousands of scientific and medical breakthroughs—and won dozens of national awards—since its inception in 1988.  

BEN (biosciednet) – The BEN Portal is the National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Pathway for biological sciences education. The BEN Portal provides access to education resources from BEN Collaborators and is AAAS. Over 15,488 reviewed resources covering 77 biological sciences topics are available. BEN resources can help you engage student interest, shorten lesson preparation time, provide concept updates, and develop curricula that are in line with national standards for content, use of animals and humans, and student safety. 

Hope to see you there!
