Environmental Science Current Events Article Search

Finding environmental science current events can be a difficult task. A great deal of the articles and websites that arrive through a simple search are overly simplistic, biased, or simply do not contain any in-depth information. The number of current event sources that is appropriate for the high school or college student is actually very limited in number, and these can be drowned out amongst all the other current event sites on the internet. A rubric for this assignment is available as well.

This is a custom environmental science current events search engine to help students find recent, relevant, and engaging news articles. This search is restricted to only reputable science news sources, including National Geographic, BBC News, NPR, the New York Times, Discover Magazine, Smithsonian Magazine,, and Vice.

Type in any search term in the box below for a listing of recent articles on that topic.
