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?

Hard at work.
It is 11:54 pm and we just finished our work for today. We caught around 70 lizards today and checked on lots of clay models. After dinner we started measuring lizards and we are now calling it quits for the night. We'll be back at it early in the morning. Looking forward to the first skype call tomorrow.
