It's easy to look at the world and feel despair. War, poverty, disease, depression, cruelty and greed seem to be the headlines 24/7. But I think we're amazing. I think the human race is the most inventive and inspiring thing to happen to this planet.
The word Science comes from the Latin word Scientia which means "knowledge", and it is through knowledge that we'll survive. The more we understand this beautiful Universe in which we float, the more we come to learn who we are, why we're here and what we're capable of. I really believe (and I will not apologise for my optimism) that Science is our greatest invention and we're going to use it to save the species!
Everyone can be a Scientist because everyone can learn about the world. The more people learn about the world, the better the world becomes. I'm a Science teacher because I want to help that happen.
