    Science is everywhere

    By Sophia Stuart

    Science is a collective of global thinkers bringing next-generation solutions to real-world challenges. But often our view of what a scientist is, or how s/he spends their working day, is very narrow. Broadcom MASTERS International, a program created by the Society for Science & the Public in 2012 with the Broadcom Foundation, wants to change all that.

    I’m now...

    Studying effects of climate change on glacial ice

    On a college study abroad trip, Twila Moon stood near a large valley glacier in Nepal. She heard the glacier melting, and dripping, and ice shifting.

    "I thought it was the most interesting, magical thing," Twila said.

    She was enthralled — and went back to school to become a glaciologist. Now, Twila, an Intel ISEF 1996, 1998, and 1999 finalist, studies climate change's effects on...

    Using a creative writing technique to improve scientific communication

    One science teacher uses a beloved English and creative writing method in his classes. He workshops with his students, and "didn't know that's what I was doing until my wife told me; she's in language arts," said Paul Strode, a teacher at Fairview High School in Boulder, Colorado.

    If you can't write, you simply can't do science.

    Paul teaches a science research seminar where he gets...
