Science education has a real problem. It doesn't involve much real science and fails to make connections to all of the wild places on our planet where science happens. Instead of learning about science, kids should be learning how to do science. We want real research based science education in the classroom, where kids (and teachers!) are excited about science, and have fun while they work. Can you picture a science classroom like this?
