The need to comform and fit in pressures us not to be different. Teachers need to meet the needs of all the students, and the uniqueness of each student would demand a lot more time than they could afford. Working conditions in many bureaucratic settings have very proscribed behaviors and patterns of doing business. Many function with a top down approach that leaves no room for ideas to be expressed. Expressed ideas are often not forwarded by the next up in the chain of command. Why don’t we encourage children to embrace their creativity? because for many it has been eliminated or suppressed from our lives thus we cannot encourage what has been lost in us.

Fortunately children are basically a clean slate (tabula rasa) when it comes to learning. I think it’s us, the adults, who have the problems and convey our misgivings about math and science to our children. Unfortunately.

I think it is important that we all challenge ourselves to be more creative. To find solutions to many of the problems we all face today we need to think outside the box.

As a scientist I still wonder why math and science are so scary to adults—and eventually to children. There is a lot to learn if we can just keep our minds open. Nature and all the things we experience daily are a good start. We’ll need all the bright young minds we can get to focus on the essential environmental issues facing us.
