Scientists seek to answer questions that nobody knows the answer to. Often, science classrooms solely focus on the information scientists have previously obtained at the expense of teaching students how to use the scientific process. My goal is to introduce students to this process by sharing with them the challenges and rewards of my research. I hope these activities allow students to see science in a new way.
