Current Issue: October 2017
October Issue Highlights
It’s finally officially fall! Here in the DC area, we’re still waiting for the fall weather to really rear its head. We see the leaves changing color and some have even started falling to the ground. What makes the leaves of deciduous trees change color and eventually fall off? Our Read-Around-A-Theme this month takes a look at the science of fall leaves to help you understand and answer that question (p. 329).
With the coming of fall, we’re also getting closer to picking the winners of the 2018 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prizes for Excellence in Science Books. Our judges have narrowed down the books they’ve been reading and we now have a longlist to share with you. You can see this list starting on page 322.
Finally, on October 23, 2017, we will celebrate Active Learning Day, which is a day when instructors at all levels of education—from kindergarten to college—are actively engaging students in STEM and announcing new efforts to sustain the use of active learning throughout STEM education. You can read more about it starting on page 327.
You also can check out our reviews of books and films, and what science programs on are coming to TV in November.
Be sure to check back with us next month for our list of finalists for the SB&F Prize! In the meantime, happy reading!
