What are the major & minor factors which stop children even starting a scientific investigation by themselves that they would enjoy or help them. When do these factors become autism?

I am considering asking Admin to change, on the introductory list of topics within posts the wording of “ ACADEMIC e.g SCIENCE ”, simply because I want everyone to NOT think of science as ACADEMIC (= keep clear) (= I HATE).

I am most interested in finding out if anyone came out of a test or exam and said to themselves " I enjoyed that!!" . Behind this is my desire for everyone to test themselves repeatedly. I know that many people will shudder at this thought. Posted in Non Religious Science teachers -any age group

Does the fact that you are agnostic with regard to religion make its way into effecting your everyday life? If you get a problem where you “Just do not know the answer” how do you tackle the problem? Is it the same as how you tackle religion?... Posted in Non Religious Science teachers -any age group
