In school, science was never my strong suit. I'd like to blame this on the nuns. (Can I do that?)

Things picked up for me in science when I finally got away from the life sciences and got to explore chemistry and astronomy. (Let's add fire! Let's talk about other planets!) It was great timing, because by 10th grade I was really, really tired of talking about cells and phylums.

So, that's how long it took for science to be fun for me: High school. I don't want my son to have to wait that long. To help with that, I'm looking for everyday science opportunities: natural discovery outside, discussions about weather, even cooking.

Along with this, I'm also planning to fail more. Because that's what science is all about: Experimenting. Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don't. The important thing is that we are learning

My new goal is to plan at least one science experiment with my son per weekend. Maybe we'll fail. Maybe we'll succeed. I bet we both learn something.

Science is sort of like parenting: It's about figuring out what works.

Marcia - you are already so far ahead of me in the science world - you are already planting things with your children. I need to get on it!

Science is so much fun with kids! They are natural scientists. I find if I follow their lead and what they're interested in (Hey, mom, watch this marble, rock, truck, puddle, soap bubble) it's easy to bring science into the day.

What did I learn today? My son and I learned it's still too cold in April to bike without gloves. And we also need to replant the peas that we planted on St. Patrick's Day.
