“A patient being treated at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for Ebola, the first case of the disease to be diagnosed in the United States, federal health officials announced Tuesday.
Officials at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital say the unidentified patient is being kept in isolation and that the hospital is following Centers for Disease Control recommendations to keep doctors, staff and patients safe.”
Galileo recorded changes in the surface of the sun. Darwin noticed differences in the beaks of Galápagos finches. Marie Curie studied uranium rays. Ben Franklin recorded weather patterns and used those observations to develop a theory of storm movement in the atmosphere. Many scientific discoveries started with careful observations.
That’s right, citizen scientists: SciFri Science Club is BACK! This time, we’re observing the world around us like a scientist.
What do we want you to do?
Observe everything until you notice something that interests you
Observe it methodically, keeping a record of your observations
Share your observations with us on Tumblr or by tweeting with #ObserveEverything.
We’ll be sharing our favorites over the coming weeks and discussing them on the radio - so get your notebooks ready and get cracking! Learn more here.
