In response to last week's tragedy at the fossil quarries in Lilydale Regional Park, science writer Anne Brataas has written about the importance of continuing the practice of taking field trips outside the classroom, despite the inherent dangers real life can present.

Brataas is the CEO and founder of The Story Laboratory, LLC, as well as an instructional designer and science historian.
