Happy Holidays

NSF Launches Science Multimedia

If you find yourself with some leisure time over the holidays, check this out. The National Science Foundation has launched the Science360 Radio stream, part of The Knowledge Network. You can access the radio stream via Science360.gov, the Science360 News Service, or the Apple APP store

There are more than 50 shows and more than 24 hours of programming for the service, in its initial stages. From the latest news headlines to in-depth interviews and lively discussions, Science360 Radio delivers to a worldwide audience engaging programming about all things science, engineering, math and technology. The programming is updated daily and the list of shows and features, currently from three continents, is growing quickly. Contact the service if you have a current professional science or engineering radio show or audio podcast. NSF would also like to hear about your suggestions for Science360.

The site gathers videos, images, animations and audio from wherever science is happening. The Science360 News Service is updated every 24 hours with fresh content, including some of the video, audio and other multimedia you'll find on the Knowledge Network.  The Knowledge Network is a multimedia portal at www.science360.gov, which immerses visitors in the latest wonders of science, engineering, technology and math. Refreshed daily with new video features and new shows on Science360 Radio, the Knowledge Network engages the general public, science junkies, teachers and students alike in the cutting-edge discoveries and big science stories of the day.

If you have questions about the service, contact Science360 at knowledgenetwork@science360.gov.

Instructions to submit audio and video content are found at http://sites.google.com/site/nsfstudio8/science360.
