If your child loves science, here's a way to get him or her listening to something more educational than the latest Top Ten on the iPod: Bytesize Science...
Bytesize Science translates cutting-edge scientific discoveries from ACS’ 36 peer-reviewed journals into stories for young listeners about science, health, medicine, energy, food, and other topics. It includes content from Chemical & Engineering News, ACS’ weekly news magazine.
A new topic is released each Monday from an assortment of different categories. Recent topics include: "Dragon's Blood," a podcast about a red tree sap used in Chinese medicine; "Chocoholic Science," a podcast about why people love chocolate so much, and "Germ Chat: Learning the Language of Bacteria".
The free transmissions can be heard through a subscription on the iPod, or if the child has no iPod, they will play through a feed to a web browser as well.
ACS science writer Adam Dylewski presents the podcasts from his own history of journalistic science writing, adding a bit of humor along with age-appropriate information for children.
The American Chemical Society--the world’s largest scientific society--is a non-profit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. With more than 160,000 members, ACS is the world’s largest scientific society. Its main offices are in Washington D.C., and Columbus, Ohio.
