Now there’s a concept I applaud with both my hands for a long period of time. So much of daily life depends on science but more specifically new technology and ways to make life in general not necessarily easier but liveable going forward into the future.
Also the fact that something like science is indeed fun. You do not need to convince a nerd like me of that but the sad tragedy is that by and large our children, our school going population are seemingly not interested in science and maths (do I need to mention do not really perform at it – to put it nicely).
And it doesn’t need to be this way. It IS fun and there is endless application in terms of learning, job opportunities, job creation, never mind enterprise and entrepreneurship.
Almost all aspects of human life – right from conception believe it or not – are related to science and yet attention to detail, the detail of actually enjoying it as a subject is neglected by schools at large – well that’s what it seems like to me looking in from the outside. And yet CRITICAL.
What can you do today to make science fun for your own child?
