Gadzooks! I discovered, after reading the editorial “Real science” in the June 9 Salt Lake Tribune, that the guiding principles of science — observation, experimentation, questioning and synthesis of new theories and laws — will now be emphasized in new science curricula for our schools, implying that, until now, they have not.

Well, better late than never, as exercising these principles helps students learn to interpret and narrow down complex thoughts and ideas. Equally important, their exercise is what makes science fun and a desirable life endeavor.
