Capture the future from the past….

I remember subscribing to Popular Science magazine when I was in middle school and love to read the cool gadget of the future. This is a great opportunity for student to use the archive for research paper or project.

Popular Science magazine has partnered with Google to offer its entire 140-year archive for free browsing. Each issue since 1862 appears just as it did at its original time of publication, complete with period advertisements.

Enter any keyword into the PopSci search box and dive in. As an alternative approach, you can use an online tool to plot how often any given word appeared in PopSci throughout the years: see the rise of “robots,” the decline of “aeroplanes,” and the “wartime” booms.

Check it out and hope this is something useful for your class.

Thanks,

Donny 🙂
