The Color Curiosity Shop

This despite expanding needs and opportunities for scientists and the importance of scientific research in solving national and global economic and environmental problems. The opportunities for scientists are endless. This book provides an overview of an effort to stimulate scientific thinking in students of all ages, introduce them to science in a friendly, practical way, through the sicence of color. This effort revolves around a website, and this printed workbook that aim to answer student questions about color, at levels from preschool to graduate school, in a way that gently introduces the science of color through their natural curiosity.
