"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."
Science ignites children's natural curiosity about the world around them. It also satisifies that curiosity with knowledge. Because science linkes direct, practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at all levels.
Science also teaches creative and critical thought by allowing children to develop and evaluate explanations through experimental evidence and modelling. Children learn to question and discuss science-based issues that may impact their own lives, the direction of society and the future of their world.
