Graduate students and research labs and science experiments, oh my!
The bulk of scientific research is done through government grants at the university level. There are literally thousands upon thousands of research labs conducting incredibly cool science experiments out there. All it takes is a quick google search and viola! You have hundreds of millions of ideas.
Flat Rosie at Uni
The goal of the Flat Rosie project is to bring current science research to the fingertips of kids everywhere. So if you have an area of science you love, find a lab doing interesting research, write a letter and send her off. If they are willing and able (some research is classified after all) you will see her photos and experiences uploaded here!
