Why science matters?

Science represents progress, progress is future, and so are our children. The more interest our children have in science, the more they can understand the importance of preserving our Planet, and contribute to quality of life for all of us.

We have previously presented five fun hands-on projects that can get kids excited about science. Nurturing knowledge and imagination in our kids should be every parent’s goal.

Our partners at OpenEducators.org are sharing their bounty of wonderful resources for parents and educators to make science more accessible and fun for our children. “We wanted to share our findings as part of our mission to spread helpful and trustworthy information to the public. We hope parents and teachers will find these useful.”
