Why Files: The Science Behind the Newsoriginally funded by the National Institute of Science Education through a grant in 1996 but is now produced by University of Wisconsin--Madison and features science, math and technology topics that are related to news headlines.
The Why Files produces a new story each week, alternating longer features with shorter shorties. We also post a biweekly column by science reporter Tom Siegfried, a series of interactive science animations, the ever-popular "Cool Science Images," and a series of Teacher Activity Pages linked to the national science standards.
The Why Files was founded in 1996 as part of the National Institute for Science Education, with funding from the National Science Foundation. Since 1998, we have been supported through the Graduate School of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
