Zeitgeist

Here’s a word or two about science, from a hero of mine: Carl Sagan.

I love science: I love the childish way it questions everything. My parents didn’t always appreciate my habit of taking everything apart and asking “Why?” But it helped my intellectual growth, and continues to do so.

As educators, we must foster this impertinent curiosity; otherwise, as Sagan tells us, we will be prey for charlatans.
