Science here, there and everywhere

In school, science is "a subject."

In the real world, science is a way of seeing, and thinking.  photo Stromboli.jpgCuriosity, observation, speculation, examination, comparisions, openness to surprises, and practice with rational thinking help one learn about things seen and unseen, small and large, from a smoking volcano to a shell on a beach to an icicle in the sunshine.

  1. Yes, Sandra, indeed! We just had two wonderful days of shelling in South Carolina and found huge whelks with older locals that showed us their secret spots... It was awesome. I learned so much, just like the girls. We learner from those new friends' passion, from the sea, from our discoveries... Yes, science is so much more than a subject!
