Eureka: Issue 1, 2017


In the fall of 2016, Eureka began as a collaboration between Catalyst, Rice’s undergraduate science research journal, and the Energy Institute High School. Catalyst has always had two main goals: creating exceptional and accessible science communication, and providing educational opportunities for those who want to develop their writing and communication skills. For Catalyst, partnering with Energy Institute AP Environmental Science students was an obvious next step in expanding our outreach efforts. This issue explores a variety of subjects ranging from artificial intelligence to the cognitive effects of hunger. These articles cover not only the scientific research being carried out, but also how it intersects with social issues: the most important part of research is how its results ultimately impact our lives. By learning how to communicate the necessary details but also the broader implications of scientific research, the writers of Eureka developed the skills necessary to promote scientific literacy in their communities.
