Like your gaming system? How ’bout medicines that make you better when you’re sick? Air conditioning? We have scientists to thank for these and so many other things in our modern world.

I am one of many people working hard to translate the discoveries of science into language that engages kids and other folks.  My focus here is biology (that’s my degree) but I’m curious about physics, chemistry, technology, geology, and many other “ologies” so you’ll see lots of other stuff here, too.

There are plenty of websites about animals and nature out there; my goal is to create one with a minimum of advertising and meaningful, fun content that respects kids’ intelligence.  Explore and learn with me.
