Scientists in Action

As important as science is in the world today, with educators and business leaders clamoring for tomorrow's experts in a wide variety of fields, science still faces some hurdles in getting students psyched. Scientists in Action! is here to change that. By profiling energetic, hands-on, action-packed scientific careers that take experts out of the lab and into the world, each volume will make scientists into Indiana Jones (well, almost). Marine biologists dive deep beneath the waves, physicists soar into space, veterinarians face down raging gorillas, and climatologists brave subfreezing polar weather. That's a whole lot more exciting than a Bunsen burner and a test tube! Each book has photos of the scientists in action, inspiring stories of real-life scientists changing the world, and ideas on how students can explore each science as a career. Who needs lab coats? Grab your parka, your swim fins, and your hard hat and join the Scientists in Action!
