The Cephalopod Empire

The Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole Massachusetts is home to roughly 3000 Cephalopods, likely the largest population at any research laboratory. The Cephalopods provide unique experimental value to scientists who have been studying them for decades.

Fitbits for birds

If you have ever used a step counter or a heart rate sensor, you’ve used the same technology that biologists at Lenoir-Rhyne University are using to study Herons. We take a look at how the same GPS and tracking technology is being used on birds.

Science students don’t often learn about the trials, tribulations and outright failures of histories science rock stars, and that may be hindering them. A recent study found that students actually improve their science grades after learning about the struggles of famous scientists including Albert Einstein and Marie Curie.
