Today, more than ever before, science holds the key to our survival as a planet and our security and prosperity as a nation. It’s time we once again put science at the top of our agenda and work to restore America’s place as the world leader in science and technology.- President Barack Obama

“Being a scientist is a way of looking at the world, an insatiable curiosity to understand everything – to create and even destroy, if necessary, for the sheer thrill of discovering how the world works.”
Science@OC recently interviewed Lisa McClellan a 5th grade teacher at McGaugh Elementary in the Los Alamitos School District and former Cotsen fellow and mentor. Her passion for science was sparked by her parents who were school teachers, and her grandfather who encouraged her learning. She takes pride in student success stories, and believes students have no limits on what they can accomplish today. We applaud Lisa for igniting a sense of discovery in her classroom and to encouraging her students to continue their exploration online. Click here to read her entire interview.
