I am interested in learning what types of activities and experiences create biological scientists.
These are images of children during "unstructured" play in the outdoors. These types of activities foster curiosity and interest in the world around them, a great foundation for future biological scientists!
This contact with the natural world fosters bonds and promotes positive values regarding nature (Chawla, 2002; Horwitz, 1996; Kellert, 2002).
It has also been shown to improve cognitive function (thinking!), self-discipline, and a reduction in behavior associated with ADHD (Taylor & Kuo, 2009; Taylor, Kuo, & Sullivan, 2002; Wells, 2000).
I am always looking for more motivation. Feel free to e-mail me and photos! They may appear on my website.
