Open science platform Frontiers publishes new Nobel Collection articles

Five more Nobel Prize winners publish free scientific article collection for children

Last year in September, as many young people prepared to go back to school, the very first Nobel Collection, featuring articles written by Nobel Laureates, was launched by Frontiers for Young Minds (FYM), a unique, completely free, open access kids’ science journal. The Collection has been a huge success, having been viewed over half a million times online.   

Today marks the release of the second Nobel Collection articles, connecting curious minds of all ages to exceptionally high-caliber scientists and offering exciting insights into the world of real science. As for all FYM publications, each of the five articles has been written for young people aged 8 to 15 and has been reviewed by kids themselves to ensure they are understandable, fun, and engaging.

The series of Nobel Laureate contributions will continue into next year and beyond to grow this valuable educational resource in order to motivate young people and encourage analytical thought and imagination at the same time.  

Commenting on the Collection release, Laura Henderson, head of public outreach program at Frontiers, said:  

Nobel Prize winners are great inspirations for our young audience – not only in sharing their amazing discoveries and their pathways through science, but in giving kids the revelation that even the best in their fields aren’t all-knowing – as scientists they learn with each discovery. We’re thrilled to connect young minds with some of today’s most distinguished scientists, and we are immensely grateful to the Laureates for providing superb learning material which is now available to anyone around the world.”
