Develop system thinking skills
In our courses, we introduce the students to the ideas of complexity, emergence, and self-organization. We discuss the importance of modeling and the lack of human intuition when dealing with complex, interconnected systems. We also model making mistakes and help the students to develop habits of critical thinking.
During the course, children ask themselves many questions, ranging from the possibility of flat planets to whether one water molecule is wet. But even more important is that after the lesson is over, children continue to think and wonder about the world.
