I pointed out to my children how amazing the miners’ rescue was as well as how strong the men must have been mentally. I paced the floor and we counted 15 feet across our bedroom, so the children could get an idea of how far the miners were underground. I wanted them to appreciate the greatness of sciene and technology. I presented it in a manner where they could see themselves as scientists making practical, yet amazing discoveries and inventions.
As I watched the capsule arrive inside the Chilean mine, I could not help but be moved bythe purposefulness of technology. I was fascinated to watch video images from a camera positioned more than 2,000 feet below the surface of the earth. It captured a signal and broadcasted it around the world. It was a testament to human creativity.
Point out the wonders of sciene to your children. Remember! Your are your child’s first teacher.
