The mission of the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at the University at Buffalo is to promote the development and dissemination of materials and practices for case teaching in the sciences. The website provides access to an award-winning collection of peer-reviewed case studies. The Center offers a five-day summer workshop and a two-day fall conference to train faculty in the case method of teaching science. In addition, the Center is actively engaged in educational research to assess the impact of the case method on student learning.
Science News for Students (formerly Science News for Kids) publishes award-winning journalism on research across the breadth of science, health and technology fields. It aims to bring these new developments to a younger audience. Published daily, Science News for Students posts both shorter news stories and longer features, all written with a vocabulary and sentence structure aimed at readers 9 to 14 years old. The breadth of technical subjects and tone attracts many advanced readers as well. Our stories highlight ongoing research in fields ranging from astronomy to zoology.
