We’ve all heard the old adage that we learn by doing. Well, neuroscience now brings us evidence of how and why children learn best through heuristic (experiential) teaching approaches from the earliest ages. Science is at the core of who we are, how we tick, where we came from and how we prepare our children’s children for their future. Its a complex and exciting field, with as many brain bending challenges as it has solutions.
What makes the difference between a good and a great teacher is knowing how to inspire your children to find the right questions to ask so that their discoveries make sense for their lives, and become important and exciting to them as tools for growth.
These are the teachers who re passionate about building relevant and accessible contexts around important scientific concepts that might otherwise be overwhelming or mind-numbing. These are the teachers who understand what a creative learning environment can do for a pupil’s engagement in learning throughout life. These are the teachers who know that any child can fall in love with science, if only they experience the joy of scientific curiosity and discovery.
Their children are the ones who can make connections across all subjects, are not afraid to take risks, think creatively and solve problems independently or in teams, have exciting aspirations for their future, and are thrilled by the prospect of their next science lesson. Because their teacher is the one who is bringing science education to life for them.
Let us help you find the key to unlock your children’s love of science, by unlocking it for yourselves.
