New Site Aims To Keep Students up to Date on STEM News

Students studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects now have a new resource to turn to for news of the latest discoveries in fields that interest them.

Science and Technology Research News (STRN) is designed specifically for students interested in STEM careers and aims to provide "a daily snapshot of the many discoveries and innovations from leading scientists and technologists," according to a news release. "STRN was created to offer students a comprehensive view of their area of study and, perhaps, open them up to another area of interest."

"Very few students entering university have a good grasp on what really interests them," said Ray Rasmussen, publisher at STRN, in a prepared statement. "Sure, they have an aptitude for science or technology but, for many, their exposure to all the different facets of what STEM offers, is limited. STRN gives them an opportunity to see what else is out there. It's our hope that we can help them discover their passion."
