Science Teaches Life Skills

Along with language and maths, science is an extremely important subject that is central to most school curriculums around the world. A well as the facts, figures and methods that it teaches, it also teaches children valuable developmental and life skills.

Science helps children to answer questions about the world they live in by showing them how to think critically.  At the same time it teaches them the resilience to keep on questioning. Ultimately science doesn’t just teach kids about subject itself.  Science teaches life skills.  It teaches them about life and how to think independently for their entire lives.

And getting children interested in science is easier than you might think, from teaching children about thought experiments, taking advantage of some great science kits for kids or replicating simple experiments seen on YouTube.
