About the Author: Dr. Keller received her Ph.D. in biophysical chemistry from the University of New Mexico in 1992. She continued her work with an NSF postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Molecular Biology at UNM followed by a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Keller didn?t plan to be an author, but as she home schooled her three children, her scientific background, coupled with her love of learning, brought her to a decisive point in her career. Taking the plunge, she decided to leave academia and develop a series of science books for kids. Writing for the home school market and having been in an academic setting for most of her adult career, Dr. Keller understands the issues faced by both religious and secular parents. The Real Science-4-Kids books are Dr. Keller?s answer to the difficult territory teachers and parents navigate as they try to sort through the various philosophical perspectives found in science. Real Science-4-Kids is written as a ?worldview-neutral? curriculum that Dr. Keller hopes will not only provide students with a solid foundation for science, but also give them the tools to evaluate scientific data on their own. Dr. Keller does not believe we should rely on the ?experts? but instead learn how to critically evaluate every scientific claim. ?In this uncertain economy with so many social, scientific, and economic problems, it is not enough to teach our kids what to learn.? says Dr. Keller, ?We must also teach them how to learn and we must also encourage our kids to learn from others. Part of learning from others is to know how to engage in productive debate.? Today, Real Science-4-Kids, with its easy to use teacher-friendly manuals and engaging, kid-friendly text, is used in 50 states as well as Australia, Canada, Japan and Korea. Dr. Keller?s publishing team continues to develop and test products at her Albuquerque headquarters.
