Students are not the only ones who need to be exposed to science. It is also important to include families in outreach activities. This helps adults see how their children are excited by science, while it also proves how it is not as difficult of a subject to foster as they might have previously thought.
Extending beyond the standard classroom setting is important. Students can all learn if they are in an appropriate environment. By creating a variety of short 20-30 minute activities, students can be fully engaged and practice creative thinking skills to master seemingly complex and difficult topics.
Science and engineering are very rewarding fields to enter. It can take years to develop an understanding of how to conduct quality research, so it is important to mentor students. This helps give them a more in-depth understanding of all the steps required.
