First Paragraph

Science and Education: two academic cultures with a wall between them. How can scientists surmount their own narrow disciplinary interests and capture some of the other culture’s excitement? In a previous article (Feller, 2008), the first author, a benthic food-web ecologist, related his personal transitional odyssey from the realm of field and laboratory research to the realm of science education. As Spector and Leard (2008) document so eloquently, these really are two distinctly different cultures.
