Interest in Science

Interest in Science in children

We had to live in a time to develop an interest in science and technology was advancing rapidly and with limits. Therefore, our children need to have the knowledge and tools that allow them to work in areas where these lessons are becoming increasingly important. And again, scientific knowledge helps foster a critical spirit, solve problems, stimulate thinking, think and act.

Thus, for many children, science classes are difficult or tedious. Science is often associated with complex theories, formulas, circuits, equations, and intractable problems. But there is nothing further from the truth. The problem is not the subjects but the methods used to teach them.

How do arouse interest in Science in children?

Science can be silly and fun. We should only take advantage of the natural interests of children and the resources we have. From an early age, children are fascinated by everything around them. As they grow older, they touch, experiment, and ask questions. They are researchers by nature from knowing the environment and how it works. In addition to fun, it is essential to guarantee survival.

This generation of curiosity can help us awaken interest in science through simple experiments and materials for everyday use or easy access. If we also compare scientific knowledge to real-life experiences, the interest will be even more significant for them.

How can you bring your children closer to science?

2.1 Testing

You do not have to have a laboratory at home. Not even what you buy tools or other things. You can do a lot of experimentation with creative materials or be easy to find. Try experimenting with water, balloons, candles, or even food. On the Internet, there are thousands of tips to do. However, I will publish some simple and fun articles to try in future articles. Testing is helpful to develop an interest in science in children.

2.2 Looking

The kitchen is an excellent laboratory. Children can touch, mix and observe many physical, chemical, and biological events. They can also see flavors and products. Mix items, play with food, prepare solutions, keep track of different products, and see which things float and which do not.

Stupid activities like making coffee, boiling water or freezing a drink or it was an egg can help us explain the reaction, a change in the level of substances, or the expression of proteins. Looking or observing is helpful to develop an interest in science in children.

2.3 Give Science

You can take advantage of a birthday or Christmas gift to give your kids a science tool. They will want to see everything hidden in public and with a microscope. Or you are observing the sky with a telescope. Some binoculars for watching birds or looking at fruits or animals are also excellent gifts to make Science more appealing.

2.4 Visiting local markets

The market is a perfect field of work. You can see seasonal fruits and vegetables, spices, fish, and crustaceans in them. Young people can learn to distinguish them from the eyes, while adults can do a lot of work by pointing and drawing what they see, their personality, and their place….

2.5 Museums, exhibition space, exhibitions

Take the opportunity for a weekend or vacation to visit your children’s museums, exhibitions, or interpretations. Children may not find the idea appealing at first glance, but they will soon change their minds when they see all the facilities and shops offered by these places.

2.6 Exit to nature

Take the opportunity to dedicate a day to science as a family moving to another area. You can go to the field with a magnifying glass to look at insects or binoculars to see birds. Get to know the animals and plants, and choose flowers or leaves. On the beach, you can observe the waves, the transformation of animals and plants into a salty environment, driving, splitting pits …. Creatures offer many opportunities for your children to become fewer scientists.

2.7 Books, plays, and collections

There are many books, collections, and games on various scientific topics. And, yes, living in the age of art, using audiovisual and interactive media is an easy way to reach the scientific world that almost all kids want.

2.8 Let your children see Science instead of talking about it

It often attracts parents to give answers and answers. But to live with interest in science, children have to observe, experiment, ask questions, find answers, create assumptions, and draw conclusions. Do not be afraid that they are wrong. After all, life is trying and failing.

These are just a few tips from the thousands of experiences we have at our fingertips to enjoy Science. As you can see, there is no need for a lab or complex equipment and tools. Our laboratory can be life, the environment around us, and the experiences there. We have in our daily lives many opportunities to learn Science.

In future articles, I will tell you how we can study Science in different places and some foolish things to try to do with items found in the house if it is easy to find in our regular stores.
