"Bob is a legend to those who have been lucky enough to come in contact with him. And that is a lot of people! His ideas on experiment-based teaching...revolutionized the teaching of science K-9 in Newton, across the continent...and in Europe, Asia and Africa," praised several who nominated him. Bob's vitae show that he was at the forefront of curriculum reform before it became trendy. He served as a consultant in Kenya and Portugal and with NOVA for 13 years. His impact on science education and science teachers has been exceptionally noteworthy.
