In order to effectively catalogue, promote, reference, and share content related to Science and the Big Questions (SABQ), we propose to design, develop, and soft launch a content-rich, public-facing aggregator website. Equally useful for scientists, educators, press, grantees, grantors, and the educated public, this website will be robustly populated and consistently updated with significant, substantive SABQ media content, including news items, blogs, multimedia, and other BQ resources. The site will combine a logical and intuitive taxonomy with powerful sorting and filtering functionalities to dynamically display manually curated content from around the web. The site will be scalable, mobile-friendly, and boast a clean, forward-looking aesthetic. Currently, there is no centralized location where web-users can go to find essential media outputs related to the full range of Big Question research projects. So much important, fascinating, and compelling work has been funded, completed, and reported on, but has no accessible home on the web. SABQ research needs an aggregator site to be that go-to online destination—the single, reliable, sustainable resource scholars can use for two distinct benefits: - To discover and explore content relevant to their studies - To more widely publicize and share their work with peers, other educators, grantmakers, the media, and the public at large The aggregator site will benefit the general public too, providing a compelling and engaging repository of inherently interesting, important, and timely information. This website will spark intellectual and spiritual curiosity, generating new opportunities for learning and discovery for the educated layperson. It will allow educators, media, and grantmakers to efficiently filter and sort content in a variety of useful ways. And perhaps most importantly, the online content that emerges from SABQ research projects will have increased visibility and a more significant, lasting impact.
