Gale Science in Context buttonDo you feel lost when others discuss the latest scientific developments in global warming, extinction, or green engineering? Or are you the weakest link on your trivia team when it comes to the Science and Technology category?  Does your school-age child need help coming up with an idea and researching a science-fair experiment?

Authoritative, informative and up to date, UAPL’s research database, Gale Science in Context is easy to use and accessible to all age groups and reading levels.

All scientific fields are covered, with topic pages that pull together easy-to-understand overviews as well as information from books, journals, newspapers, websites, and more. Also included are dictionaries, biographies, and experiments.

Check it out today, and if you’re in the Summer Library Club, mark this as one of your activities, and log any time you spend reading articles about science!
