The latest issue of the free magazine, Science in School, is now available for teachers worldwide. This issue covers topics ranging from to the latest scientific thinking on the origins of life to the social impact of climate change on traditional lifestyles in the Arctic.
The magazine and website provide teachers with updates across a wide range of science topics and classroom activities. Issue 49, published today, includes a challenge for students to devise a plan for growing plants on the Moon, and details of how teachers can use a common forensics technique to reveal fingerprints.
In addition to a digital version of the magazine, the Science in School website includes regular updates. Science in School is published by EIROforum, a collaboration between eight European intergovernmental scientific research organisations, of which EMBL is a member. The journal addresses science teaching both across Europe and across disciplines, highlighting the best in teaching and cutting-edge research.
To study the effect of commonly used drugs on bacterial envelopes, EMBL scientists applied a biochemical assay using a colour reaction. The deeper the red, the stronger the disruptive effect of the drug.
