Do Students Work Like Scientists?
I was recently reading the May/June 2022 issue of “Science and Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the “Science 101” column, written by Matt Bobrowsky. He wrote an article entitled, “What Makes a Great Science Investigation?”
Real-world science doesn’t involve a series of steps, and there’s not always a single correct answer. Real science is exploration and discovery and lots of fun! Scientific investigations are open-ended and can keep being extended or expanded, so too is learning an ongoing endeavor. Isaac Asimov said, “Education isn’t something you can finish.”
