Play and Science
Neuroscientist, Beau Lotto thinks all people (kids included) can learn science through play. Play is one of the only human endeavors where uncertainty is actually celebrated. Through play and discovery, we change our perceptions based on what we have experienced. Lotto is joined by 12 year-old Amy O’Toole, where they discuss the research Amy and her classmates conducted: The Blackawtonbees Project, the first peer-reviewed article to be published by school children. Check out Beau Lotto and Amy O’Toole’s TED Talk “Science is for everyone, kids included” here.
