Science In Context features authoritative information covering all major science topics.

Gale Interactive: pairs interactive models with periodicals to bring science to life and improve students' understaning of the sciences.
Today's Science explains important developments in biology, chemistry, the environment, space, physics, and technology. Students are provided with information in context, clearly explained and abundantly illustrated, so they can see new advances not as inexplicable wonders, but as resulting from the application of the same concepts and principles of investigation (the scientific method) that they are learning about in simpler form in the classroom.
