Most parents will tell you that children love to push boundaries, play endlessly and explore all things around them. And children aren’t just doing this to annoy parents, they are actually learning.
The way that children learn and scientific method have a lot more in common than you might think; starting with a simple idea, children are able to try and prove or disprove an idea, learn from the outcome and improve their knowledge, much like the fundamental process that scientific research follows.
Following this logical process helps children to develop critical thinking skills. And even at its most basic level, science feeds a natural love for learning, children are natural explorers and science offers them plenty of hands on, fun and exciting things to explore.
Science helps children to answer questions about the world they live in by showing them how to think critically and teaching them the resilience to keep on questioning. Science doesn’t just teach kids about science, it teaches them about life and how to think independently for their entire lives.
