“All students, not just those destined for a scientific, technical, or health-related career, can benefit from the skills that science education can provide—such as critical thinking, data analysis, working in teams, and oral and written communication. The need for scientists to share their unique skills and understanding with their own local school or school system has also never been more pressing.” Scientists in Science Education
