Ancient Chinese Proverb
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
(This applies so well to teaching science. Hands on learning stays with students a lifetime.)
There are multiple academia websites that provide articles on the benefits of Hands on Teaching/Learning in relation to science. There is no better way to ignite the minds of students than guiding their exploration of scientific theories. Theories that may be difficult to understand become very clear when using a hands on approach. These lessons excite students that may have been on the edge of frustration trying to grasp concepts thru texts and lectures. Science First® encourages you, teachers and parents alike, to IGNITE SCIENCE! Review the benefits on hands on learning in the science fields and give your students and children the scientific edge in a world where science is so important. #ignitescience
