My favorite science experience was completing a native and exotic grass study within the University of Arizona Biosphere 2 (figures 1a and 1b). Biosphere 2 is a research facility where scientists perform experiments. Biosphere 2 also enables public participation in the scientific process. Biosphere 2 is a large enclosed building that simulates different ecosystems. It was especially fun to talk with students from nearby schools who came to tour Biosphere 2. I told students about the work I do as a scientist. From the time I was young, I watched PBS Nature every Sunday evening. This TV show had a tremendous influence on my life. Now, I measure how plants respond to environmental conditions outside and inside Biosphere 2. When I make my measurements, I like to imagine that my work is being filmed for the PBS program Nature.
