An interview with Isabel Hawkins, Co-director/Research Astronomer, UC Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory; Co-director, NASA Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum.

Isabel describes how she sees science as a cultural construct, the value of learning from personal experience, and that evidence comes in many forms.
