Let’s Talk To a Real Live Scientist!

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by Lee Kolbert on 08-02-2010

I’ve been in contact with some folks who work with Erika Ebbel (see last post) and we are trying to work out a plan for Erika to video-conference with my students at some point over the next week or so. The students are hard at work planning their Science Fair projects. I’d love for them to have an opportunity to “meet” Erika, ask questions and to run their project ideas by her. Understanding the Scientific Method is a challenge for my students. I’d love for them to have a conversation with Erika about how she uses the Scientific Method in her job as a biochemist.

If you could speak with a real scientist, like Erika, what would you say to or ask her?
