A 100-Million-Year-Old Virus Lives In Our Bodies?


Connections is a blog for scientists, engineers, educators and more to DIRECTLY engage with students (no middle man).

  1. Find an interesting bit of news, an event you want to share or a discovery you want the public or student body to know about!

  2. Create an account (official or personal). Add a sentence to describe yourself and start writing!

  3. Finally. Make sure:

  • Get permissions for images and other media (below example = open access image from "Wix Image Bank")

  • You give due credit for any quotes or non-original content

The example below is of an article I read this morning and found interesting!

All the best,
