Sci/Why: a science blog for kids and Adults

As a former science teacher, I love catching up on what’s going on in the world of science, so it was a treat to hear about a relatively new science blog launched by a group of writers who specialize in science for kids.  It’s called Sci/Why, and it’s fabulous. At Sci/Why, you can get questions answered, read book reviews and articles, and catch up on resources for kids and adults.  The articles are as diverse, covering a variety of science topics that include: geology, dragonflies, eyesight, and dinosaurs to name just a few. The common thread  (aside from science) in all the articles was that each was engaging, informative, assessable, and well written.  Bravo to the creators and contributors of Sci/Why.  Be sure to check them out.

    Do you think enrichment class is a channel to motivate kids as well?

      It can be so long as enrichment doesn’t just mean more structured time for the convenience of the adults. I also believe that enrichment should allow for lots of opportunities for kids to explore their interests, rather than the interests their parents might like them to have.
