      Good question. I haven’t done a lot of work with science classes in a while so I’m not sure I have a good answer for you. As a computer modeller, I have gone to work with students and brought some marine data sets trying to help them link things like temperature, nutrients and phytoplankton growth, for instance. I hope this gives the students real world example of why we collect data and how it can be useful.
      More importantly, what kind of experiments do you like?

      One experiment that everybody loves (my first) is the extraction of DNA. I do not get bored of it, found it always exciting to see your own DNA or other specimens’ DNA in a little flask.
