15 minutes?

In talking with some edu-colleagues today, I learned that the K-5 public school curriculum in California includes exactly 15 minutes of science each day.  15 minutes.  15 minutes.  If I say it again, the 15 minutes may be up.  What on earth can you learn in 15 minutes a day? 

More to the point, how can a passion for science be ignited and fed in 15 minutes a day?
