Need a compelling reason for studying science with your kids? Here are three: Done as intended, it should provide a daily jolt of awe and wonder at the marvels of God’s design. It should also inspire our own creative impulses, because creativity is surely one marvelous way we are made in His image. And ultimately, science should expand our faith in a personal God who knows us by name and has a particular and meaningful purpose for each of our lives. The evidence is convincing and abundant.
Science, as God intended it, should produce joy. If not, we aren’t approaching this subject with a big enough vision.
That’s what Professor V. (Vicki Dincher) and I are hoping to convince you and your kids of at the upcoming Awestruck Science workshop Oct. 24-25, 2013 in Hershey, PA. And we plan to do it with a lot of eye-popping demonstrations, hands-on experiences, and engaging fun. At the end of the day, we want you and your kids to go home eager to dive into your science studies anew. Even better, your kids will be equipped and motivated to initiate their own scientific investigations–you’ll just have to follow their lead.
In the meantime, I am having a blast getting ready for this event: Delving deeply into an investigation of the topics Vicki and I are planning to present is expanding my faith and wonderment at God’s incredible creation and intricate design. We can’t wait to share our enthusiasm with each of you. Hope to see you there. (Everything you need to know can be found here.)
