It's Nobel Prize time! This week, Nobel Prizes will be announced in the following areas:
- Physiology or Medicine
- Peace Prize
- The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel
To help students, classes, and families talk about the Nobel winners in the sciences--and to contextualize the kinds of research, discovery, innovation, and advancement reflected by the winners--we will be highlighting relevant Science Buddies project ideas, where possible, to give students a chance to explore and research similar topics. In some cases, project ideas highlight a different angle or veer in a different direction, taking an approach that is applicable to advanced school study, high-school lab settings, and science fair guidelines, but we hope to give high-achieving students a foothold into areas of study singled out by Nobel prizes this year.
