A Science news section on the Science portal
The 'In the news' section is a great resource on the Main page. I would love to see a 'Science news' section on the main science portal page

Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

There is little variety on the Science portal page

What is your solution?[edit]

By adding a 'Science news' section, the page can be made more varied and keep user up-to-date with current science stories. At a minimum, science interest stories from the Main 'In the news' page could be inserted here.

Project goals[edit]

Variety and current interest for readers interested in modern scientific breakthroughs and knowledge.

Get involved[edit]
