NPR Science: February 14

Week of February 14, 2011

Click on the logo above to go the the NPR Science site, or use the links below to navigate to one of the stories that I thought may interest you.

Last week, I showed my students my most recent NPR post and allowed them to pick the story title that most interested them to watch and talk about at the beginning of class.  They picked the video on the Meat-Eating Furniture and were quite intrigued.  Then, I showed them James Randi’s video on Homeopathy.  None of them had heard of homeopathic treatments but they appreciated being educated regarding the difference between these treatments and drugs that have been through FDA approval.

Happy listening!
