Vicki Cobb, recipient of the AAAS Lifetime Achievement Prize for 2012, tells the story of how the imaginations of Copernicus and Galileo predicted the proof that the sun moves around the earth. Children will become outraged at Galileo's punishment and will quickly see that we're still resisting scientific truth. This program humanizes the BIG ideas of science.
Vicki Cobb is noted for her interactive programs with children. Her use of lots of questions without calling on a individual children involves the class in thinking. Some of her points are illustrated with slides and with a video animation. There is time for the children to ask questions.
The children will:
•Experience the mystery that is revealed by scientific questioning
•Understand that, in science, how we know determines what we know.
•learn an easy hands-on way to understand a complex idea.
•see how difficult it is to gain public acceptance for a new idea.
