What are your favorite science resources?


I’m going to do an interview with James Zimmerman from Minnesota Atheists next week. He wants to talk science, which I’m super excited about, and he’s asked me to come prepared with some resources that I can list for adults who want to learn more about science.

Not like that’s a HUGE areas or anything.

I’ve got my personal favorites, but they’re mostly centered around medicine and biology. I’m definitely going to mention the Science Museum of Minnesota and their Social Science program, and I’m going to get a plug in for the upcoming SkepTech conference in April. And I thought I’d ask for some help from you all. If you’d be so kind – what are your go-to places – physical locations, special events, open-source learning/classes, websites, TV shows, social media outlets, etc – for your various interests? General science resources are good, but if you’ve got any resources for specific fields that you think really shine, I’d love to hear about those too!

    They are a bit dated now, but for a basic understanding of various areas of science I have always enjoyed Isaac Asimov’s books on the subject, such as Asimov’s Guide to Science and his Understanding Physics series. Asimov was a prolific writer and covered a host of subjects. He wrote books on the basics of nearly any field one is interested in.

    ScienceDaily, Scientific American blogs, Starts With a Bang are three favourites. mobius: great idea. I like Broca’s Brain, A Demon Haunted World, Dragon’s of Eden, all by Carl Sagan. Lastly, Skeptical Enquirer Magazine.

    I still like going to the library and just browsing the science section.

    In order to prep for grad school & just explore my general science interests, I’ve been taking courses through coursera.org. They are free & from well-established universities – and cover all topics, not just the hard sciences. And they’re no joke – the Intro to Human Physiology course I’m in right now is intense – awesome, but intense. You don’t get college credit, but given that they are free, I think that’s fair.

    Wow. Talk about a broad subject.

    I couldn’t earn my living without PubMed, but it’s not a science resource that I would recommend to the lay public.

    I guess Science Daily is a good resource on the interwebs. Though it occasionally suffers from the “he said, she said” style of journalism where any research report is subjected to instant criticism whether or not the critic has read the research paper or not.

    I think LiveScience.com is an excellent site for reading science that is entertaining and light. For people not used to academic pursuits, or having an overly intellectual approach, it is a great place to get immersed and spend hours reading. I get lost for much too long there at times!

    http://www.livescience.com/ – “This site explains the latest research on the planet, from human biology to the animal world and the forces of nature.”

    The science media site like Live Science and Science Daily are good starts for hearing about basic research. But when something catches my eye I usually try to follow up by finding some expert science commentary from relevant blogs and sometimes expand my basic understand from some basic online source. Yes, it often is Wikipedia

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
