The Unbreakable Bubble: Fostering Scientific Discovery
Presentation by Dr. Rebecca Keller
Can you put your finger through a bubble... without causing it to burst? Learn to enter your child's natural inquisitive world, without bursting their bubble. Children are born observers, asking why and how... turning objects over and inside out... taking things apart. However, many teaching methodologies burst a child's passion for observation, a key element to scientific discovery. Dr. Keller will show you how to use open inquiry to launch scientific exploration and cultivate creativity. Are you ready to question like Einstein?
This presentation was broadcast on June 10, 2015 during the 2015 National Home Education e-Conference and is now part of our member archives.
