How does your work contribute to Seeing Science Differently?
This work contributes to Seeing Science Differently by examining methods to teach science in a meaningful way to pre-school aged students. Teaching the notion that “Science is a way to answer questions” to students aged 4 and 5 years old is a novel approach to laying the groundwork for good science engagement as students get older. It begins the habit of identifying science concepts in the world around them.
