Frontiers for Young Minds

STEM teachers and students (as well as anyone who enjoys learning about science but dislikes reading traditional journal articles) may be interested in Frontiers for Young Minds. This innovative resource publishes open-access articles written by scientific experts and reviewed by a panel of kids between the ages of 8 and 15 who provide feedback for the author with the help of a science mentor. The resulting articles are accurate, easy to understand, and crafted to be as interesting as possible. As of this write-up, Frontiers for Young Minds publishes content that showcases new discoveries and core scientific concepts in six subject areas: astronomy, biodiversity, earth science, health, mathematics, and neuroscience. Each subject area has its own editorial boards and a team of science mentors. For those interested in participating in this project, information is provided for each of the possible roles, including downloadable guidelines for both authors and reviewers. So far, more than 500 authors, about 1,300 young reviewers, and over 300 science mentors have been part of Frontiers for Young Minds.
