Every child is a scientist.
Every child is an engineer.
Every child is a musician.
Every child is an artist.
Mixing food and water? That’s science.
Stacking blocks? That’s engineering.
Banging on a bucket? That’s music.
Scribbles on paper? That’s art.
When we evaluate a child’s output against our preconceived ideas, sometimes we unintentionally tell them that they are not scientists, engineers, musicians and artists.
The danger is that some kids might just believe us.
