Science Minutes

Stories from inside the work and passion of our local science community.

Atlantic Public Media resides in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, which is the home of five major science institutions. A logical connection has been to tell the stories behind the scientists’ work and passion. APM has created Science Minutes, which currently air on WCAI. APM is also producing One Species at a Time, an audio component for the Encyclopedia of Life involving secondary school students and citizen scientists.
