The wondrous things I read at a very early age in publications like Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and Scientific American stoked my interest in science. The numerous mind-bending facts and mysteries I came across in these magazines always brought me back for more. A sense of the spectacular tinged with an aura of mystery is a must in order to interest kids in science. LiveScience.com has a good understanding of these principles, with an attractively designed opening page and eye-catching headlines, such as "Deadly Ecosystem – In Your Pillow", "Insects' Amazing Rubber Made in Lab", and "Mystery Ocean Glow Confirmed in Satellite Photos." LiveScience.com has a bit of something for everyone, not just kids. Its tightly organized design (7 categories of information) complementing a scrolling list of headlines, helps the site succeed as a fun to read news source.
