Put a Little Science in Your Life

by Ann Bartkowski

Earlier this year, Ryan and I both happened to start reading different books by Brian Greene, a physicist and professor at Columbia.  Yesterday he wrote an Op-Ed article in the Times about science and education.  His eloquently written thoughts really resonated with me and I wanted to share the article below with you guys-

Put a Little Science in Your Life

“Science is the greatest of all adventure stories, one that’s been unfolding for thousands of years as we have sought to understand ourselves and our surroundings. Science needs to be taught to the young and communicated to the mature in a manner that captures this drama. We must embark on a cultural shift that places science in its rightful place alongside music, art and literature as an indispensable part of what makes life worth living. “
