"We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry."
Dr Maria Montessori
I love this quote and the way that it invokes the magic, creative leaps and artistry that are inherent in the process of experimentation, inquiry and discovery!
We've been talking STEM a lot within our teaching team lately. There are so many ways to introduce science, and its magic, to young children. Over the next few weeks we will share some of our favourite 'Simple STEM' experiences - tasks that are not overly complicated (and don't require elaborate materials or an adult with particular expertise) but that inspire children to get hands-on with the wonderful worlds of science, technology, engineering and maths!
