I want more people to recognize this concept of right-brain science.
Oobleck and rock candy and prisms can be just as valuable experiences in someone’s life as a centrifuge or a chemical hood. I still believe I’m allergic to science desks but my lack of a current science curriculum has made me reflect on my past scientific experiences.
All in all, I’m glad I paid attention to the lectures and learned a little something along the way.
