Albert Einstein once said, “To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.” This is still true for us today as it is increasingly more important for our children to learn to be creative thinkers and problem solvers. For us to compete globally, we need to teach our kids to be flexible thinkers who can develop solutions, not just memorize facts for the next test. This leads me to a story I would like to share with you. A story about a 10 year old who was inspired by Thomas Edison and Buzz Lightyear; who asked questions, imagined new possibilities, and explored an idea. Watch this Science Matters Video about Nathan Lord to see how he put inspiration and education to work.
