All science, all the time

Curious about the latest innovations in biofuels and nanotech? Wondering what they’re cooking up these days at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory? 

The National Science Foundation recently announced the launch of its Science 360 radio stream for web, iPhone and Android, which promises to cover all science, all the time.

The 24/7 programming on Science 360 radio covers Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and includes 100 radio shows and podcasts produced in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.

It also carries public radio documentaries such as “Rocket Girls and the Astro-nettes,” “Race and the Space Race” and the “Engineers of the New Millennium” series, as well as audio programming  from NSF news conferences (webcasts) and the NSF series “Profiles of Scientists and Engineers,” which highlights young professionals on the job.

“Science360 Radio isn’t just the first STEM Internet radio stream, it’s also an incredible resource,” said Kirsten Sanford, host of Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour and co-host of This Week in Science, in a statement.

She goes on to note that the collection spans the scientific disciplines, giving the stream unparalleled informational breadth, and that the variety of shows ensures that everyone will find something to enjoy.

Science360 Radio is the latest addition to NSF’s Science360 Network, which includes a STEM video library, the daily multimedia news feed Science360 News Service, and an iPad App.
