Science comes alive for students when they learn from a real scientist who has put what they are learning into action. No access to a scientist? No problem. Check out this post and then enter to win an instructional Biology DVD from +Apologia Educational Ministries, Inc.  featuring a real life biologist on location and in the lab.
