Наука - это модно!

Science is trendy!

They say it's important to instill an interest in science in childhood, so that sparks of curiosity can then ignite a flame. The thirst for knowledge is inherent in any cub, but this important stage in childhood is very easy to miss, just letting everything take its course: hand over the designer and send it to play in another room; do not read popular science literature with the child; ignore the children's "why?" and leave without explanation everything that happens in the outside world.
I myself adore children's non-fiction, because the disparate knowledge that has remained in my head since school days is finally lined up, thanks to these encyclopedias, into a coherent picture of the world. In our childhood, there was very little such literature, there were no educational cartoons and sets for experiments at all, and our parents had a lot of household chores. Maybe that's why we first encountered science at school and immediately received information not in general terms with specific life examples, but immediately in the form of tables, formulas and numbers, and science remained something abstract and boring for many.
Fortunately, the "Science is fashionable" trend is now clearly visible! Being smart is cool. Programming at 12 is the norm. It is necessary to attend additional classes in addition to school. Conducting scientific experiments at home is a great family leisure activity. Class! We dig up minerals from a container of gypsum, watch how a lemon generates electricity, grow lavender from seeds on the windowsill, mold dinosaurs from plasticine (and I can already tell Parasaurolophus from Ankylosaurus!) and listen to audio encyclopedias about Chevostik in parallel. This is a really great project! There are books, CDs and a very curious site about Chevostik www.chevostik.ru, where a whole world of knowledge is placed, where you can listen to podcasts, take tests, play games, and there is also a parent an office where statistics are collected about the success and interests of the child.

"Mom, you and I walk down the street like two professors!" - oh, how these words warm my soul, and one of my greatest desires is that our scientific research on the way to the kindergarten or at breakfast in the kitchen, if not grow into a true passion and business of life, then at least help to develop a harmonious and versatile personality with a wide range of interests.
