Spelling is important for scientists...

Attention to detail is important for scientists. One such detail is spelling...Now, "How does that affect scientists," you might ask. A nurse or doctor for example, needs to spell medicine names correctly. That detail could save lives.

But, how else? Well, scientists write laboratory reports in the technical, refereed journals. These journals are peer-reviewed, but, good spelling helps. So, here is a link to a spelling contest for those 14 and over. Have fun with it.
