First I want to thank Dr. Karen C. Cohen, the Editor in Chief of the Journal of Science Education and Technology for her support. This special issue would never have come to be were it not for Karen Cohen’s vision that children everywhere should become motivated curious citizens, eager to learn and inquire, and able, ultimately, to make a genuine contribution to humanity. I also want to thank the reviewers for their thoughtful and thorough suggestions to the authors. I also want to express my gratitude to Michael N. Fried for helping me in writing the introductory piece and to Yair Dor-Ziderman for not only editing the introduction but also for his always insightful ideas.
