You might be wondering, "How can there be a science lab at home? Home is home. I eat, sleep, play, and do homework there. A science lab is where scientists hang out, discovering even more things for me to learn in school. Besides, aren't all scientists guys with white coats and long gray beards, who mutter things like: E = mc2 or 'Ah ha! I've found the secret of living forever!'?"

Well, not exactly! Scientists don't always work in laboratories, don't necessarily wear white coats, and don't talk like they were starring in a sci-fi thriller. There are some scientists with
long gray beards- usually they are older men.

Almost anyone can make scientific observations and do experiments, even kids . And anywhere that you make observations and perform experiments can be considered a science laboratory. Entomologists, scientists who study insects, do most of their work in forests, jungles, and backyards. Herpetologists, scientists who study reptiles such as snakes and lizards, hunt for their subjects where they live in
wooded areas, swamps, and fields.

Some astronomers, scientists who study planets, stars, galaxies, and everything else in the cosmos, set up telescopes in their back yards, in parks, or on mountaintops.
