How can I help my child learn about science?

Parents don't have to be a science genius to help their children become budding scientists! It's much more important to have a positive attitude about science. There are lots of opportunities to learn about science every day and you don't need expensive chemistry sets or books. Children can easily be introduced to the natural world and encouaged to observe what goes on around them.
Parents and children can learn about science through the following activities:
  • See how long it takes for a dandelion or a rose to bloom
  • Record the changes of the moon cycle over the course of a month and record the changes
  • Melt chocolate and watch it turn solid again
  • Grow tow sets of seeds, keep one in a sunny spot and the other in the dark and see which grows best
Learning to observe objects carefully is an important step towards solving scientific explanations. It's vital to experience the world together and exchange information about what we see happening around us.
