More Information

There are many current issues facing the public's perception of science, including who can do it. But what does science mean to us as a species and as a social practice? Hands-on scientific experiences are now possible in accessible, creative and impactful ways. With children's eyes and the minds of well-trained scientists, we'll show how to poke, prod and carefully structure our play, through innovative yet simple tools. By presenting projects that supplement the information learned in a formal setting into a social and collaborative exploration, students can reinforce the theory they are taught, all while contributing to publishable scientific research.
