Learning is in the Doing

Before turning students loose it is important they know what they're being turned loose to do.








Science being learned as scientists do science. Knowledge is not in books, it is in the student, waiting to be constructed by using their senses, experiences, and feelings. Ideally the textbooks are used as references for confirmation of what they've experienced. It is difficult to experience a textbook.



What does density feel like?










What's it like to divide the mass of the boat's cargo by the volume of the boat?










What does bouyancy look like?








How does it feel to have gained intellectual wealth?








What's it like to enjoy learning from failure?
