I recently volunteered to judge at the annual science fair for a local middle school. It was really inspiring to see all the creativity in the room. The whole experience was a good reminder of why I got into science in the first place. I feel that as we get more and more focused on a single subject (e.g., speciation of island birds), we tend to forget that our work should still be fun and exciting. These kids reminded me of that. What a great experience!
