Young kids are often not willing to learn Science. They believe that it is rather dull and uninteresting, and it is also hard to understand their science text book. As a result, some parents are looking for good methods to make science interesting for their children.
One of the more popular choices for super Science workshop fair projects in the lower grades is a project that involves life science. Life science is the study of trees, animals, humans, and all other living things. Something as simple as comparing plant growth will count as a science fair project. In order to win, though, take the project up a notch and try growing plants through a hydroponic or aeroponic system. The most important thing is that your child comes up with a good system that they understand and can present healthy growing plants without the use of soil!
Sure, there’s no substitute for real experience and knowledge. But there’s also no substitute for a professional trainer who can take that real knowledge and experience and turn it into practical skills used in the workplace. This is where companies waste thousands of dollars on training. They hire people who don’t understand how to make training work. Because of their lack of knowledge of the science of learning, they run theater shows which are often not much more than “show and tell” experiences.
My “kids,” now in their twenties, think it rather amusing to read about themselves as they were over ten years ago. They laugh at the characteristics of the children, seeing their own personalities as youngsters. There are some differences, however. Valerie is actually “the baby” and Genevieve is the eldest, with Joe stuck in the middle. In the book, Valerie is older than Joe. I have “thumbs up” from all three.
The second step is making sure the Science projects for kids your child chooses to do is connected to what they are currently studying. This means that the project will help your child further understand their Science workshop for kids lessons. When they meet their success, they will also be encouraged to come up with more projects! Another thing to keep in mind is that your child should try and do the project by them self as much as possible. This will give them a sense of accomplishment over the completed products, and that feeling is very encouraging for a child!
Bafflement: How does it all work? Knowing that the mechanics of it are based in theoretical quantum physics, many people immediately decide that the physics is too complicated for them to understand. And they feel that they can’t use it if they don’t understand it. Reminder: you can drive your car without understanding how the engine works, and you are able to turn on a light without understanding the science behind how electricity flows. Law of attraction is the same. We can use it without knowing the mechanics of it. Many authors, movies, TV shows are incorporating these ideas and putting them within the grasp of even little kids.
Back in the workshop, I asked the inventor when he first became interested in creating new things. For as long as he can remember, he has wanted to invent things. His first really big invention was an electric car that he made in his parents’ garage when he was in high school. It was for a science project. It went 90 miles per hour, and it traveled 60 miles on a charge. When he went off to college to University of the Pacific to double major in Electrical Engineering and Technical Theatre (odd, yes, but you can see a pattern there), he sold the car for exactly $10,000. An entrepreneur even then.
These are just words. But when you start thinking as a marketer, they do have incredible power behind them and Matt Bacak shows you all you need to know in his workshop.
