Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

The Seven-Year-Old practices her mad scientist cackle

Background: This semester we gave The Seven-Year-Old the option to sign up for two after school classes. She picked Old School Sports, which teaches you to play old-fashioned games like Four Square and (The Seven-Year-Old fervently hopes) badminton. She also picked Crazy Chemworks. 

Daddyo: “How did you pick Crazy Chemworks?”

The Seven-Year-Old: “I get to be a scientist for once.”

Daddyo: “Why do you want to be a scientist?”

The Seven-Year-Old: “I want to study whooping cranes.”

Daddyo: “How will Crazy Chemworks help?”

The Seven-Year-Old: “I want to make medicines to help whooping cranes.”

Pause.

The Seven-Year-Old: “And I want to make explosions with science.”
