Welcome to This Week in Science!

We’re on a mission to close the big gap between the latest scientific research and what people know and use every day. In the world of science, it can take up to 17 years for a new discovery to be used in real life. That’s a long time! Plus, many scientific studies don’t get the attention they deserve—about 93% go by without being mentioned in other research, and less than half of the studies funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) get discussed in scientific journals within two and a half years.

This isn’t just about delays; it’s about real losses—both in money and in opportunities, especially in areas like health care.

We’ve talked to researchers, doctors, teachers, and students. They all face the same problem: there’s so much scientific info out there, and not enough time or resources to keep up with it all.

Our solution? Make science simple and exciting!

Here at This Week in Science, we want to make the tough and sometimes hard-to-reach world of scientific research accessible, engaging, and fun for teachers and anyone interested. We think the thrill of discovering something new shouldn’t be locked up in academic papers. Instead, it should be shared in ways that spark curiosity and help everyone understand and enjoy science.

We use cool AI tools to turn complex, scholarly articles into easy-to-digest content. This means creating eye-catching infographics, lively discussions, and quick summaries that bring science to life. Our goal is to help teachers introduce the newest scientific findings in their classrooms and to light up a love for science in their students.

With new rules requiring open access to research funded by the government, there’s never been a better time to dive in. This Week in Science stands at the crossroads of technology and education, ready to seize this moment. We’re here not just to speed up the time it takes for research to reach the classroom but to make learning a more enriching and lifelong adventure for everyone.

Join us on this exciting journey into the world of science!
