  • Failed ‘star’ found in sun’s backyard

    Some starlets aren’t so hot. Consider the brown dwarf that was just found 7.2 light-years from our sun. NASA reported the discovery of this object on April 25. The failed star has a downright frosty temperature, somewhere between -48º and -13º Celsius (-54º to 9º Fahrenheit).

    Like regular stars, brown dwarfs begin as balls of gas. Over time, gravity causes that gas to condense into a...

    Science site brings the brain to young minds

    Writing about science for young people is hard. There are many rules, and even more little tricks. Don’t swear (of course). No passive voice. Stay away from commas, and never use a semicolon. Avoid words with more than three syllables. Keep sentences short. Define everything. Don’t condescend. The minds may be young but they aren’t stupid.

  • Affiliated Fair Guidelines

    New affiliations

    Before affiliating with Intel ISEF or Broadcom MASTERS, fairs must have been in operation for at least one year in which they had a functioning Scientific Review Committee to review and approve student research. This requirement is to help ensure that new fairs are an effective and sustainable educational activity before becoming affiliated.  Fairs may appeal this one-year...
