Teaching Science

Science is observing which leads to Questioning----> Testing  ----->   more Questions ------> Explanation

Science Makes Connections


To Do Science

Science does not begins with the "SCIENTIFIC METHOD"...It never did, as any scientist would tell you.  Our exploration into science began ~~and begins with:

W O N D E R --at the things we see, hear, smell, touch, taste.

We then progress to:

W H Y -- as we ask the questions of our wonderment.  

We then move forward to:

W H A T   I F - as we hypothesize and experiment to explain our wonderment further.

Albert Einstein Quotes

"The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking."

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.  It is the source of all true art and all science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead:  his eye are closed."

Matter is neither created nor destroyed.......It only changes form.

"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first create the universe." Carl Sagan
