Here is what we could not witness but I imagined at the beach - I wish safe journey for the hatchling we released in the sea.

Science or Scientific thinking?

Scientific thinking is not limited to science and knowledge and it's beautiful!

Scientific thinking is not limited to studying to science (physics, chemistry and biology)

Scientific thinking is a process, which is not about knowledge but about a skill, a way to think.

Stimulation in the beginning of the week with wondering, pondering, playing with balloons..
