To fully engage students, the Science Pros illustrate how the scientific method applies to everyday, practical situations and solutions.

"My interest in science began when I was a child. I am an example of the tremendous potential that science teachers have to inspire their students and create a lifelong interest in the subject," says Dr. Robert Kernstock, Principal Scientist, Clinical Pharmacology & Translational Science and Astellas Science Pro.
