It may not be the Oscar ... but then again, in our world it is!

Science World has won the two highest national awards in educational journalism: the EdPress 2002 Golden Lamp Award for overall excellence and the 2002 Periodical of the Year Award. The awards reflect the magazine's commitment to making teachers' jobs easier, more efficient and exciting. This year we'll add more interactive charts and graphs, plus end-of-feature questions that help students prepare for state-assessment tests. Don't miss a single 2002-03 issue, as we delve into the hottest headline topics in life and Earth science, physics, space and technology, and health.
