Let Our Kids Be Scientists
When students conduct experiments they learn that scientific concepts aren’t simply plucked from the air, but rather arrived at through inquiry, criticism, and verification. It's up to us teachers to provide them with a space to ask new questions and share out their own results — this allows them to authentically think through concepts.
