Bad Science

Researchers from the University of Toronto found that children who grow up with a dog have healthier guts and are less likely to develop Crohn’s disease – a common inflammatory bowel disease. University of Cambridge-led researchers uncovered evidence of the eggs of parasitic worms in humans living at Durrington Walls, a Neolithic settlement dating back to around 2,500 BC. By the year 2099, temperatures will have taken away somewhere between 50 to 58 hours of sleep per person per year – under 10 minutes per night, report experts at the University of Copenhagen. An energy firm suggests rat culls on Sark to offset disturbance by an English wind farm to seabirds. The group hopes to put pressure on Cornwall Councillors to increase efforts on climate change.

What’s good in theory doesn’t always make much difference in practice, as the science tells us. Nanoparticles are extremely tiny particles, with external dimensions … Read More

Messy Church Does Science

Heron’s fountain is a great project for a science fair, as it is simple to make and displays many of the basic principles of physics. This project shows how potential energy can provide power, using water and gravity, and air and compression. These are fundamental aspects of pneumatics and hydraulics and Heron’s fountain also lets you have a bit of fun during the process. Support pupils with special educational needs by scaffolding learning in… Assembly ideas, lesson plans and thought-provoking activities to help explain…

Our Definition Of Science

The all electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft was launched in October last year and proved so popular it sold out almost immediately for delivery later this year. It Street View picture highlights include the White House at Christmas , the waterways of Venice , the Colorado River from inside a boat , and the view from the Eiffel Tower . In 2009, the Science Council agreed that it wanted to be clearer when it talked about sound science and science-based policy. The Science Council has “science” in its name but had not previously clarified what this actually meant. Over the last few years the Science Council has established itself as a leading voice for the professional practice of science, independent of discipline.
