Children are natural little scientists, questioning everything from why the sky is blue to how an iPod plays almost as soon as they can talk. But the excitement of investigating, debating and figuring out how things work is often missing in American science classrooms, something new national standards are trying to change. Brian Reiser of the School of Education and Social Policy is a contributing author of the framework used to develop the new standards. He explains why they are so critical for children — and for a functioning democracy.
