    American educators are struggling with how to get students interested in science. The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is presenting one approach: a new, first-of-its-kind learning center for teens. Students from area schools helped develop this exhibit which fuses science and art. Teachers will be encouraged to bring their science students to the exhibit in the mornings, while the afternoons will be open to the public. VOA's Julie Taboh reports.
