Tune in to podcasts on science and more

For quick hits of inspiration, check out these five podcasts that appeal to gifted kids — especially those with a scientific bent:

  1. 60-Second Science: A one-minute look at a scientific development, provided by Scientific American.
  2. Astronomy Cast: Stories of the cosmos and the astronomers who study it.
  3. MinutePhysics: Cool physics with a humorous twist.
  4. Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day: Definitions and etymology of uncommon words.
  5. The Stuff of Genius: Interesting inventions.

These podcasts also are available on iTunes.

Thanks to the Institute for Educational Advancement for compiling this list, and for Muriel Knope to sending it my way.
