A free online science education resource has been launched by the UN Cultural Agency (UNESCO) for students from disadvantaged regions around the world

The World Library of Science or WLoS was created to help them access the latest science information, share experiences and learn through discussion with their peers.

The online library is stocked with over 300 top-quality articles, 25 eBooks and over 70 videos from the Publishers of Nature, a trusted global scientific journal.

It's also a state-of-the art digital platform that provides a community hub for learning where users can join classes, build groups and connect with other learners.

WLoS is free of charge and open to all with an aim to help equalize learning opportunities, strengthen science and education and improve the quality of teaching and learning.
