Every few months, American newspapers publish another dreary statistic about our country's scientific ignorance. But there are schools in the U.S. that are exceptions to this gloomy picture. These are the schools that, year after year, win the Westinghouse Science Talent Search, the nation's most prestigious academic contest.

Science, according to a teacher at Midwood school, is an acive verb. 'To science is to discover how the world works. Scientists hypothesize, analyze, synthesize, and explore. He constructs, collects, and records. She experiments, searches, and computes. They discuss, read, write, dismantle. clean, and repair.' After reading this book, as a student, I want to be a scientist. Science teachers will know how to be good ones. Parents will learn what they can do best for their kids. And scientists will want to nurture the young scientists. This is a powerful, inspirational book for everyone interested in science and the spirit of human.Was this review helpful?
