6 Ways to Inspire Your Child to Love Science

Oscar Marin

Getting your children interested in science as they begin school can be quite a challenge. Kids with an early interest in science seem to do better in school and home. Make them learn and develop an inquisitiveness towards learning science phenomenas and finding the reasons of all the processes happening around them.

    This isn't really official, but challenge young people. My niece is always interested by everything she's reading and picking up throughout the day. She'll then throw out trivia left and right in excitement, looking to me to nod and share in her interest. Whenever she says something I know isn't right, though, I'll tell her.

    She'll get mad for a moment, and then ask, "how did you know that?" I'll happily tell her, now having her undivided attention.

    This isn't harsh, I believe. I'm talking with her, respecting her learning and inquisitive nature.

    And it doesn't have to be strictly science-related to start. She was talking to me about Native American peoples in Central California the other day and I stopped to correct her that it was the Chumash she was trying to tell me about. I knew what I knew because I just started to routine a mountain peak that is also a notable Chumash marker. I had done a little reading on the place since I go so often, and got to break into telling her about local geography and a bit of astronomy (which is why I go to that mountain in the first place).

    I'm glad I could share with her a bit of my interests by adding onto what she was telling me. Share, people. Kids will eat everything up and want you to talk with them.
