"Scienc News" - A science news site for kids

It is easy to browse sites which provide specific topic information, such as kids sites which are based on learning, offer different interesting and interactive activity based games or information for them. I usually review the sites or blogs which are equally useful for kids, children, teachers or parents.

Science News for Kids is a new Web site devoted to science news for children of ages 9 to 14.

Their goal is to offer timely items of interest to kids, accompanied by suggestions for hands-on activities, books, articles, Web resources, and other useful materials.

Their emphasis is on making the Web site appealing by offering kids opportunities to comment on and grade the subject matter, get ideas for science projects, and try out mathematical puzzles.

For teachers: They offer teachers creative ways of using science news in their classrooms

Society for Science & the Public, the publisher of Science News, is a nonprofit corporation based in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1921, Society for Science & the Public has the mission of advancing the popular understanding of science through publications and educational programs.

Science News for Kids Web site is devoted to particular interests.

At present, there are six zones:

1- a weekly brainteaser for those who enjoy solving and inventing puzzles (PuzzleZone),

2- Entertaining science-fiction composition exercises for those interested in writing (SciFiZone),
3- Weekly science fair profiles along with science project ideas and tips (ScienceFairZone).
4- The GameZone contains a small selection of logic and memory games, implemented as Java applets.

5- The TeacherZone has materials, including question sheets related to the feature article of the week, so that teachers can bring science news topics to the classroom.

6- The LabZone features a weekly hands-on activity or science project idea .
