Science Evangelist… of sorts

During a break at the Anaheim Hands-on Science Boot Camp, I met a real-world Miss Frizzle (so to speak). Denise Goodman is a science evangelist of sorts who travels to some 50 schools each year throughout the state in an effort to bring new science experiences to students and teachers who might not otherwise get this opportunity. Imagine a forty foot trailer rolling up to the school filled with the coolest science experiments, gadgets, microscopes… even a portable planetarium. I pulled Denise away during a short break in the workshop to ask her some questions about the students and teachers she sees and her thoughts on some of the greatest challenges our schools face today with regard to science education.
