Science, step by step

How to succeed in science (with a lot of trying)

The new Student Science series Great Science Projects provides a roadmap helping students to successfully complete an independent research project.

Teaching science

Young scientists find advantages to pursuing related problems — sometimes for years on end.
 Increasingly, young researchers seek patents to defend their innovations against theft.
 How and when to apply for a patent.

STEM careers

Here we profile three scientists who are developing super-repellent surfaces. All have found inspiration in the living world.
Scientists get at the root (and stem, leaf, flower, fruit and seed) of the relationship between plants and their environment.
 Samples collected long ago may hold answers to important questions in science and medicine today.
