Science as described in research journals? Boring and tedious.

Science as described to children? The greatest thing ever.


On a related note: If you haven’t heard them already, be sure to check out some of the 24/7 Lectures from the Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony. That’s where scientists give “a complete, technical description” of their work in 24 seconds, followed by “a clear summary that anyone can understand in 7 words.”
