Ever wonder where all that dino poop went? Whether ants use toilets? Whether plants talk and, if so, how their “language” evolved? And what would you guess is the survival function of stinky feet? These are precisely the sorts of questions about which national science journalist Rebecca Coffey wonders. Family Friendly Science is a collection of science articles written by Rebecca and intended to get families talking together about science. You can find FFS on the radio, here on the web, and soon to come on YouTube.

Some of the FFS articles are written with high school students in mind, some for middle schoolers, and some for littler kids. Use the category drop-down level at left to search by grade level or by category of science. (But remember. At Family Friendly Science, all posts are appropriate for whole-family family discussions about science.)
