Today we continue our series Single Best, where we ask top science writers and editors to give us their single best piece of advice, given or taken; or their single best idea, reporting trip or memorable experience. Here, science journalist Elizabeth Preston shares her insights into writing about science for kids.
Preston is editor of MUSE magazine for kids ages 10 and up. She also writes the blog Inkfish, hosted by Discover. Follow her on Twitter @InkfishEP.
