Dr. Leland Hartwell won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2001 for the discoveries of key regulators of the cell cycle.

“We want our students to have an authentic experience of science. Nearly all science activities designed for schools require the students to demonstrate an established scientific principle by getting the right answer. Getting the “right” answer is not authentic science. Science is the exploration of the unknown – the answer cannot be known.“

- Leland Hartwell
