Science Is About Doing
I was interviewed about the importance of interactive Science learning, by the Christchurch City Libraries.
“The beauty of science is that it really is all around us, just waiting to be explored – there are ample opportunities in everyday situations to teach your kids about their world. Children (and adults!) often learn extremely well with hands-on activities. Often the teaching of science is simply about looking at the world from a scientific perspective, learning to think critically and asking lots of questions. People often forget that there is science within cooking, from raising dough (baking soda/powder chemistry reaction) to simmering a pasta sauce (evaporation), these are lessons just waiting to be taught!”
