In this issue of Junior Skeptic, science award winning nine-year-old Emily Rosa tells about how she got the idea to test Therapeutic Touch for a Science Fair project. With only $10 worth of materials and a good knowledge of the scientific method she discovered the truth behind an unusual medical treatment and became the youngest person ever to get research results published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Bill Nye is right; science can be fun!
