Scientists in the Field Series

Posted on: Oct 4, 2013 @ 4:23:15 pm

The Scientist in the Field series can’t get any better. We can’t imagine it. As a matter of fact, we recommend that this series be in every school library—elementary, middle, and high schools. Why? What better way to demonstrate inquiry learning, scientific method, and process than through the everyday, real world with real scientists? This series introduces readers to actual scientists, how and why they became scientists and how they stumbled upon the research projects that matter so much to them. You follow them through the steps and stumbles of the scientific method. You will be on the edge of your seat, biting your nails, through the trial and error of trying to get Mars rover, Opportunity, from spinning his wheels on Mars. Believe me, after reading this, students will be invested in science and learning!
