ScienceNOW Stories

ScienceNOW is the daily online news site of Science magazine. I worked remotely for ScienceNOW as an intern from April to June, 2013. All stories (embargoed science news, with one or two exceptions) were assigned by my editor. ScienceShots are 100-200 word photo captions; all other stories are 500-600 word multi-source news briefs.
