“Thinking Like a Scientist”– primary school workshop

Donald J. Davidson ran a workshop on “Thinking Like a Scientist”, for East Linton Primary School P5’s Science week, on Thurs 1st June 2017:

To contribute to East Linton Primary School P5’s Science week, Donald J. Davidson offered to trial a workshop entitled “Thinking Like a Scientist”.
The pupils enjoyed activities developing ideas on how to assess information, and introducing the concepts of chance, repeatability, bias, association vs causation, and creative thinking. They loved using voting clickers to canvas class opinion, and had rather chaotic fun applying what they’d learned in assessing Prof. Faikini’s new cure for Scabbynose disease!
