What's Included

A Parent Talk with Students' Science Stations Often, we think of Science (capital “S”) in one or two ways: specific formulas with procedures or bubbling chemical reactions. But science (little “s”) is a process. It’s the process of teasing out variables to find answers; it’s the inductive process of observation and recording; it’s making mistakes and learning from them. The very foundation of the sciences is built upon a flexible mindset that allows for divergent thinking and seeing multiple solutions in problem solving. In this dual presentation, students in grades 6-8 will explore science stations that require observation, persistence, and an open mind for learning. Simultaneously, parents will meet to explore the manifestations of perfectionism and how to cultivate a divergent mindset, even in an academically rigorous climate.
