University of Adelaide Launches Free e-Science Magazine

In 2011, the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Adelaide introduced its Enhanced Learning in First Year Science program. One of the aims of this program was to demonstrate the relevance of science in the world. To do this the university based the curriculum on 10 Big Questions.

An unexpected result of this innovation was that several South Australian Schools adopted the same approach and teachers started using the 10 Big Questions to make their science teaching more relevant and engaging for their students. Due to this positive feedback, the Faculty of Science expanded its activities and created a free Science magazine, e-Science.

e-Science, designed primarily for teachers, is a free magazine that offers:
- Feature articles written by key researchers linked to the 10 Big Questions in science
- Interactive elements in each article which bring the science to life
- Resources available "at your finger tips", ready for use in the classroom
- Interactive links to other useful science resources and information
- Availability on multiple platforms: iPad and web
