Video of the day -- scientists by nature


Fiddling with the universe to find out how it works -- that's essentially what science is.  Formal science adds some rules and procedures to filter out experimenter bias and other known sources of potential error, but in essence, that's what it is.

That's one I hadn't seen yet. He's right, you know. Observe a group of kids out on the playground, jumping off the play structure (even though it's breaking rules) and you'll see that they learn all kinds of things from their interaction with the structure, with the ground and with each other.

I am not joking, either. There is SO much to be learned from interacting with the universe. I think we all do science, but the ones who write it all down get the credit.

That's really true. I have a 5 yer old grandson and he loves to explore. The only time you really have to say no to them is to prevent them from hurting themselves. Everything else can be a learning experience if done right.

Glad to see this struck a nerve! I think many of the best scientists are those in whom the constant curiosity of childhood lives on into adult age.
