When I was a child, we had milk delivered to our door each day. Bottles of milk (yes, glass bottles!) appeared each morning in the insulated metal box on our porch, and any empties we’d left the day before disappeared. If you’ve ever waffled between going out in the cold rain to get milk or just drinking your coffee black or eating your cereal dry, you can appreciate how nice home delivery can be.

 Whether you want your science deliveries to your email, Facebook page, Twitter feed, or other social media, you can get your order served up right to your computer.

And don’t forget that the Archive includes press releases and related resources (podcasts, lessons, etc.) on research in physiology, medicine, developmental biology, anatomy, and other fields.

Thank you for the resources. I am curious about how things whole “deliver to your door” works.

    Thanks for your question. If you go to any of the first four links, you can get science updates sent to your email. The last two links require use of Facebook or Twitter. But remember that most science journals will send you the contents of each issue so you can see the titles and read the abstracts…just look at the journal home page and sign up for “content” updates or notifications. Hope that helps…

Thank you for these resources. At the beginning of each school year, our media specialist asks for recommendations for different content areas. I will definitely check these science updates out.
