Pathways student magazine cover

Pathways student magazine

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences recently announced the debut of Pathways, a collaboration between NIGMS and Scholastic, Inc., that provides a collection of free educational resources about basic biomedical science and research careers.

Designed for grades 6 through 12, Pathways includes a student magazine, teacher lesson plans, activities and videos, all available at www.scholastic.com/pathways

The Pathways student magazine is also being distributed to subscribers of Scholastic’s Science World magazine, reaching nearly 500,000 students in all 50 states. The magazine and accompanying resources feature NIGMS scientists such as “Beetle Guy” Ryan Bracewell, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley; “Viral Star” Mavis Agbandje-McKenna, a professor at the University of Florida; and “Gene Detective” Melissa Wilson, an assistant professor at Arizona State University.

NIGMS encourages teachers to use  #NIGMSPathways on social media to share how they’re using Pathways in their classrooms.
