Natural Philosophers at IndED

We wrapped up our science year with presentations from our kids using the Scientific Method. And we wanted to share with you how we approach science, in general, at IndED.

It’s interesting to note that the first scientists were not really scientists… Galileo, Copernicus, Newton, all were considered “Natural Philosophers”… who were using well-established rules of reason and logic, and a newfound respect for experimentation, to begin to discover what we now consider laws of Nature.

At IndED we learn science as a discipline, a set of tools to unmask truths about the world. And we make it a point to approach it as the original giants of science approached it… as Natural Philosophers, with reverence, awe, with clear purpose, and a giant dose of humility… if you’re curious, ask us about the “Thinking Like a Scientist” class at IndED or our full-curricular program.
