Hi. I’m Trisha. I’ve been blogging at Inspiration Laboratories since 2012. My goal has been to encourage learning through creativity and play.

I have been a teacher most of my life (in one form or another – nanny, elementary age after school care, education specialist at a zoo).  I taught high school Biology and Oceanography for 5 years.  Now I have the privilege of staying home with my son and daughter.

I started Read Science to combine my love of science with my love of children’s books. There are so many great fiction and non-fiction books about science. They inspire great hands-on science activities.

At Read Science, you’ll find book suggestions and science activities to go along with them.

Do you have a science idea inspired by a children’s book? Submit your post to be featured.

Find Read Science on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
