Scientist In Residence
I am a lapsed scientist, no longer directly involved with the discussion about how the world works. But through this program, I get to be a scientific consultant to a pair of elementary school teachers, helping them design and deliver scientific enrichment to their students. Perhaps I can help explore the mental juggling act of science of alternating between imagining how the world might be and rigorously testing our ideas against reality. I do think that thinking like scientist can help with everyday life, perhaps now more than ever, as we must deal with the endless flood of dubious information.
