Founded in 2003, Science News for Students (SNS) is an award-winning onlinepublication dedicated to providing age-appropriate, topical science news to learners, parents, and educators. SNS is a program of the Society for Science & the Public (SSP), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to public engagement in scientific research and education. SNS—which is free to use—helps to fulfill the Society’s enduring mission to inform, educate, and inspire. Scientists explore other planets, dive deep into caves, and chart the ocean depths. These are just some of the incredible things that the researchers in SNS’s Cool Jobs series have done. Each of those scientists started out as a student, and in their journeys from student to scientist, they have used hard work, determination, and sometimes a little luck to achieve scientific success. Now these researchers have advice to help others follow in their footsteps. On the SNS website, students can listen to sage advice from scientists with Cool Jobs.

Teachers can show their students that science, exploration, and conservation are alive outside of their textbooks by joining virtual field trips with National Geographic Explorers. Several times a month, students can participate in Explorer Classroom and connect with National Geographic explorers in Google Hangout events.
