After 20 years at a nature center (doing a lot of bird research), I jumped ship & became a science teacher. Thanks to the Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship, going back to grad school was free ... only everything was crunched down into 1 hectic year. I'm trying to improve my practice every year (for instance, I'm also a member of the American Modeling Teachers Association). If nothing else, cool PD is fun. :-)

Sinks! Our 6th grade science teacher doesn't have any & has to send kids out of the room to wash their hands, etc.

Look into Mi-STAR from Michigan Technological University. (My school is in the same boat.) I've talked with representatives selling other curricula but this is the only one I've got hands-on experience with & I liked it.
