For young learners, science is just an extension of their everyday world. We don’t have to teach young children how to wonder, discover, and explore through play because they do it naturally.
When people say they don’t like science, it’s most likely because of a bad experience they had as a child. It was the experience that shaped their negative opinion. That’s why it’s so important to our teachers and staff at AoSL to focus on creating amazing experiences that encourage discovery through play, asking questions, exploration and using creativity to solve simple problems. Amazing experiences turn into unforgettable learning experiences that can inspire and motivate children to want to learn and explore more on their own!
Mr. Bond the Science guy came to visit during our Power of Play summer, creating one of those unbelievable, unforgettable experiences for our young scientists!
