The bloggers over at ScienceBlogs, the Seed Magazine blog portal, are participating in a fundraiser to generate money for science education. The reason is simple and Janet at Adventures in Ethics and Science puts it best:
A lot of us fell in love with science because of early experiences in school teachers who made science intriguing, exciting, maybe a little bit dangerous. But tightening budgets are making it harder and harder for public school teachers to provide the books, equipment, and field trips to make science come alive for kids.
