Scene 1 Passive vs Active learning clarification: What if students were taught to actively practice science rather than passively absorbing information?

Passive learning, such as reading a textbook, involves receiving information without actively engaging with it. This approach tends to be less engaging and may lead to lower retention rates because learners aren't actively processing or applying the information. Unfortunately, American traditional high school science education relies heavily on passive learning. However, this type of learning does not reflect the true practice of science.

Science is inherently an engaging activity. To truly understand scientific concepts, one must immerse themselves in the material, ask questions, and actively perform tests or experiments. Science is not merely about memorizing facts; it's about exploring the external world, making observations, forming hypotheses, and testing them through experimentation. In this sense, science shares similarities with art, which is a way of expressing the inner world. Both involve active exploration and experimentation, whether it's in the pursuit of understanding the external world through science or expressing one's inner thoughts and emotions through art.

Therefore, a shift towards more active learning approaches in science education can better reflect the true nature of scientific inquiry and lead to deeper understanding and appreciation of the subject.

Scene x Jar diversity = Biodiversity glass jar diversity

I want to challenge the notion of adhering to a uniform aesthetic, particularly when it comes to using glass jars of the same size and shape. There are several reasons why embracing variety in the jars is not only beneficial but also reflective of biological principles.

Firstly, biology is inherently diverse and dynamic. Just as living organisms come in various shapes, sizes, and forms, using a variety of bottles mirrors the richness of biological diversity.

Secondly, the idea that academia must adhere to a sterile, uniform aesthetic is rooted in a specific Western ideology of science. While this approach has its merits, it's important to recognize that it's not the only valid perspective. Other cultural and philosophical traditions offer alternative ways of understanding and investigating the natural world.

Thirdly, considering that this project is designed for young adults, it's crucial to make science engaging and fun. By evoking the atmosphere of mysterious laboratories depicted in movies like Harry Potter, with their assortment of peculiar bottles, we can ignite curiosity and creativity in young minds. The unconventional shapes and sizes of the bottles may prompt exploration and imaginative thinking, fostering a deeper appreciation for science.

Moreover, using donated bottles from the school community promotes sustainability and community involvement. It emphasizes the principles of upcycling, reuse, and sustainable practices, demonstrating the collective effort to contribute to a meaningful project.

Finally, the insistence on uniformity in the jars can be likened to monocultures in agriculture, which often lead to ecological imbalances. Embracing biodiversity, both in nature and in our educational practices, encourages open-mindedness and a holistic approach to understanding the world around us.

In summary, by embracing variety in the jars used for this project, we not only honor the principles of biology and sustainability but also foster creativity, engagement, and a deeper appreciation for the natural world.

footnote fabrication files

Fabrication files are a necessary element for evaluation. You can add the fabrication files at the bottom of the page and simply link them as a footnote. This was your work stays organised and files will be all together at the bottom of the page. Footnotes are created using [ ^ 1 ] (without spaces, and referenced as you see at the last chapter of this page) You can reference the fabrication files to multiple places on your page as you see for footnote nr. 2 also present in the Gallery.

Code Example

Use the three backticks to separate code.

// the setup function runs once when you press reset or power the board
void setup() {
  // initialize digital pin LED_BUILTIN as an output.
  pinMode(LED_BUILTIN, OUTPUT);
}

// the loop function runs over and over again forever
void loop() {
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, HIGH);   // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
  digitalWrite(LED_BUILTIN, LOW);    // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
  delay(1000);                       // wait for a second
}
