Welcome to ScienceLand. It's a lot like YogurtLand, but there's no yogurt and it's free.

Research and Education


Ever wanted to get involved with science? Not just read about it, or watch videos online, but to do actual scientific research.
Since 2011 I've been working with various institutions, such as museums and universities, to get students experience with collecting data, running experiments, as well as performing various types of analysis. If you're interested in working with a research group, or want support with developing your own research project, please check out some of the research pages below and contact me at levisimons@gmail.com.
