Susan does a great job of reporting on science happenings that truly stike a nerve. In response to many of your comments, Susan asked if I would share an overview of a long-term research project that I'm working on with students, [...]

But as I started to think about what I would do, the teacher in me kept whispering, "Do something [...]
It's my favorite teacher training of the entire year - Science in the Rockies. It's a three-day workshop held in the foothills just outside of Denver. The dates for this year's workshop are July 8-10, 2009. The training typically attracts 150-200 elementary and middle school teachers who are looking for unique ways to make science more exciting and meaningful in their [...]
There's only one problem with these "best of" video lists... someone has to actually sort through all of the videos and come up with a list! Props to our genius video editor, Bradley Mayhew, for all of his editing magic in 2008. When the year starts out with 4,500 pounds of cornstarch and water and a cement truck on The Ellen [...]
