Submission courtesy of expeRimental:

New video series aiming to get people to try out some simple, fun, cheap science activities with children, encouraging them to ask questions, explore the world, and think like scientists.

“I find many adults are put off when young children pose scientific questions. Why is the Moon round? the children ask. Why is grass green? What is a dream? How deep can you dig a hole? When is the world’s birthday? Why do we have toes? Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else: ‘What did you expect the Moon to be, square?’ Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys the grown-ups. A few more experiences like it, and another child has been lost to science. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before 6-year-olds, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that we don’t know something? Is our self-esteem so fragile?”

While reading this submission, I couldn’t help but defer to words suggesting this same misunderstanding and disconnect between “teaching” and ‘educating” or “teaching TO vs teaching HOW to think”, via Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson….

Every kid starts out as a natural-born scientist, and then we beat it out of them. A few trickle through the system with their wonder and enthusiasm for science intact.

— C. Sagan

We spend the first year of a child’s life teaching it to walk and talk and the rest of its life to shut up and sit down. There’s something wrong there.

— N. Tyson

expeRimental: Bringing Science Home is a film series developed to “provide parents with practical ideas for fun, cheap things to do with their children. Each activity is designed to develop a child’s ability to look at, and think about, the world scientifically.

expeRimental is an online project by the Royal Institution of Great Britain showcasing the very best science videos from the Ri and around the web. Alongside highlights from recent Ri events, the Channel features re-digitised footage from the Ri archive and a range of high-quality videos from filmmakers and scientific institutions across the UK and beyond. The project continues the Royal Institution’s charitable mission to “connect people to the world of science.”

Venice’s Libreria Acqua Alta stores books in gondolas, canoes and bathtubs to protect them from rising canal waters.

They’ve also got a pretty sweet fire exit.
