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?

Fake lizard. Will it fool anyone?
This clay lizard will help us learn what selection pressures the brown anole faces in different environments. It will get attacked and we will identify and count the bite marks to learn about selection pressures.
