The difference between “learning about science” and “figuring out how and why something works.” - Geisler(Clausen)
What do you see as the difference between “learning about” a science idea and “figuring out how and/or why” something works (in science)? Learning about science is very vague, figuring out how and/or why something works is understanding and answering main questions, a phenomena as the starting point of learning. We use the phenomena to raise questions to try and understand. Which of these two ideas (learning about or figuring things out) best represents the most recent research on how students learn science today? Why might the idea of "figuring things out" be included in a section on "How Students Learn Science"? “How Students Learn Science?” article because the hands on approach to teaching is engaging. An inquiry-based learning approach. Making connections with real-world situations is also a great approach to how students learn science. It is through these discussions that students learn and inquire about the world around them.
