We would like to congratulate Dr. Sallie (Penny) Chisholm on receiving the Alexander Agassiz Medal from the National Academy of Sciences for her “original contribution in the science of oceanography.”  The NAS honored Penny at an awards ceremony on April 25 in conjunction with their annual meeting for her “pioneering studies of the dominant photosynthetic organisms in the sea and for integrating her results into a new understanding of the global ocean.” Along with being a preeminent oceanographer, Penny is also the co-author of this year’s SB&F Prize winning children’s book, Living Sunlight: How Plants Bring the Earth to Life. If you have not seen this book yet, please be sure to get a copy for your library, home or classroom. The book is superb in everyway. And with Dr. Chisholm as the co-author you can be certain that the science is sound. Again, congratulations, Penny, and thank you for sharing your knowledge and love of science and learning with children!
