“Children are natural scientists: not only are they inquisitive and energetic, but they have an instinct for controlled experimentation. The goal of science education at the earliest levels should be to encourage and refine children’s innate love of exploring the world around them and to help that encaustic behavior grow into true scientific literacy.”
– Editors of Scientific American, March 2010
