Welcome to K12Science

“I’ve said many times I’m not worried about the kids, because they’re born curious about the natural world. ...The problem (is) scientifically illiterate adults.  Adults outnumber children five to one, at least in this country, and they wield resources and they control politics and policy. ... I don’t have the patience to wait 40 years for a middle-schooler to become president to fix the world.

It’s the adults that I think should get this dose, of what science is, and why it works, and what the emergent scientific truth is and how and why that matters in policy and in the future of the health, wealth, security of the nation.”
