Discrepant Events and Surprising Phenomena

from Science Central

Program image

Some things that we experience are contrary to our expectations or habits of thinking and acting. These discrepant events are often the context for inquiry, for questioning assumptions, and for making new inferences; and understanding them can be the tests for new learning. In this program, our educators will lead you through several discrepant events. This program is an excellent way to begin a science project and to get your student’s thinking in a new way.
