The NIH Rocket Boys

I had to blog on this news item that NIH recently announced about a new children’s book that they have released for anyone who asks for it.  Called “The NIH Rocket Boys: How NIH Gives Health and Hope to Kids and the World,” the book recounts the stories of NIH’s youngest researchers including the story of a 9-year-old boy named Terence Boylan and his request for $10 to build a rocket ship with his 14-year old friend Bruce Cook.

You can send a request to the NIH Center for Scientific Review (CSR) to receive the book at Rocket Story, NIH Center for Scientific Review, 6701 Rockledge Dr., Room 3030, Bethesda, MD 20892. E-mail requests can be sent to rocket@csr.nih.gov.

An electronic version of the book can be downloaded from: http://www.csr.nih.gov/rocket/.

The real future of science?  It lies with the children, the next generation of scientists.  Do your part.
