Thank you to the hundreds of scientists who participate in and provide feedback on our hands-on science demo presentations in California each year.
Dedication: to Stephen Schneider, Stanford University, for his incredible scientific mentorship, insistence that education be based on sound science,
and enthusiastic support of hands-on climate science education
until the time of his death in July 2010.
Steve is still with us, as kids by the thousands do science experiments together, that he helped develop -- "Teach Your Children Well". Indeed!
