The Pleasure of Finding Things out
Loxley, Peter
Primary Science Review, n89 p8-10 Sep-Oct 2005
"The pleasure of finding things out" is a collection of short works by the Nobel Prize winning scientist Richard Feynman. The book provides insights into his infectious enthusiasm for science and his love of sharing ideas about the subject with anyone who wanted to listen. Feynman has been widely acknowledged as one of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century. In his later life, Feynman became renowned not only for his pioneering work in nuclear physics, but also for his extraordinary ability to communicate science to audiences of all levels of knowledge. For Feynman, science provided inspiring and exciting visions of the world. This article explores what primary science teachers can learn about reasoning from such a distinguished role model. (Contains 3 figures.)
