What microscopes add: Evoking astonishment: teaching science

Part 1 of 2

Not so many years ago, as part of our writing program, I was advising PhD students at Columbia about essays for National Science Foundation (NSF) fellowships. These are generous fellowships, and hard to get, so the applications have to be carefully prepared. The NSF people had specific questions for applicants and one of them was, “What event, when you were young, helped to ignite your interest in science?” Five students remembered the baking powder plus vinegar-driven volcano in fourth grade.

A rare but sad sight: salmon spawning in Salisbury

I got an email on Halloween inviting me not to a costume party but to behold the strange and rare sight of sockeye salmon trying to spawn in a tiny little brook that runs through Ed and Betty Tyburski’s property on East Twin Lake in Salisbury.
