“...recast science education from being about memorizing facts, ‘a trivial pursuit,’ to being about problem-solving and thinking for oneself. We need to move away from focusing on tests to showing kids that it’s ok to learn or to take risks. “Children need to explore and to discover. This is how you innovate; you fail your way to your answer. Scientists fail all the time; we just brand it differently. We call it ‘data.’" Blended Learning Tools to Propel Student Interest in STEM Pathways Randi Leonard Lisa Giguere Medical Diagnosis and Treatment
