What are you most curious about with respect to science?

I am curious to research how we can better teach science to the next generation. They will be responsible for creating clean, renewable energy resources and battling the effects of climate change.

Global climate change concerns me the most because it has the potential to wipe out our species in the not so distant future.

What positive trend, initiative or project involving science most inspires you?

I have recently been learning about the Next Generation Science Standards, which are a California K-12 teaching framework. They allow students to explore phenomena to figure out how science affects their everyday lives.
