apprentice scientist

Science can be fun when learning occurs through activity. Using the activity-based learning of science model, Prof. Nicole Ostrowsky of the University of Nice, has produced book on “The agenda of the apprentice scientist” (in french). The book has interesting hands-on activities, cartoons, puzzles, etc. to learn science. During her seminar today, she browsed through some of the chapters. For instance, in one of the chapters she starts by the question what sinks what floats. From this thread, she begins teaching physics (density of ice, water), snow, hail, rain (condensation), fractals (drawing and measuring snow flakes).

This method of teaching science is quite interdisciplinary, and it allows to integrate all the sciences while understanding one particular concept. She claims that her book is for the audience of age group from 7-70. Looking forward to the book.
