Science is for Everyone, Kids Included
The thing I get from it is this: children are not bogged down by the preconceived ideas at the level that adults are. They are able to “see” or perceive things that could be overlooked by an adult. As such, the study was useful in two areas: 1) one being the area of science to which the kids’ study contributed, 2) the other being in the realm of psychology/neuroscience in exploring how people perceive the world. It raises the question: How can we become more childlike — in science, and in other areas of life? How can we harvest the power of play?
