Dr. Wendy Saul has been a vital part of the science literacy community since 1985 when she co-authored Vital Connections: Children, Science and Book. Since then Saul has focused her attention on the relationship between science and language and how it can be better integrated in schools and libraries.

NSTA members know her from the book Front-Page Science: Engaging Teens in Science Literacy (read a sample chapter), which offers science journalism techniques that help students become better consumers of, and contributors to, a scientifically literate community.

Fostering an Insatiable Curiosity

This December 3–5, fans of Saul can meet her in person, at the 2015 Area Conference on Science Education in Kansas City, Missouri, where she will share her thoughts on sparking curiosity and active learning in students. Don’t miss “Fostering an Insatiable Curiosity: Planning for the Future,” on Friday, December 3 9:30-10:30 AM, in the Kansas City Convention Center, room 2105.
