Andy is the science editor at Highlights magazine. He used to write about psychiatry and molecules at medical centers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Galveston, Texas, but he hasn’t done that since he joined Highlights eighteen years ago. Andy works to acquire articles that (1) help kids develop a deep, lasting connection with nature or (2) show that science is an ongoing, self-correcting process or (3) both. Andy is a member of the National Association of Science Writers and the National Science Teachers Association. He was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2012.
