MUSE: The Birds

January 8, 2019
MUSE: The Birds
 
MUSE is a discovery magazine for children and teens in grades 4-8. It takes intellectual curiosity seriously, while never taking itself too seriously. The editors seek fresh and entertaining articles from the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Each edition of MUSE focuses on a central theme and open-ended organizing questions about the theme. We value articles that feature innovators, scientists, and engineers who can explain what they’ve done in a clear and understandable way. We seek articles that describe how things and processes work, and we look for claims or assertions to be backed up with evidence.
 
Theme: The Birds 
 
Organizing questions: Why do birds capture the attention of scientists and citizens alike? What do we learn from observing them closely? How do human actions affect birds?
 
Possible topics: The Big Year; Ways to get involved—everyday observation, citizen science projects, careers; Birds and conservation and/or impact of climate change; Birdsong; Migration; The why and how of building bird-safe structures and cities; What scientists can learn from birds in museums; Possible Halloween angles: Hitchcock’s famous film; Dark folklore about crows, ravens, vultures
