Being given the knowledge, skills, and foundational elements to understand how things is the basis of science. In addition, the work of discovering allows boys to engage with each other and the materials at hand in active and hands-on ways. They learn scientific vocabulary and processes, how to question, research skills, and analysis and synthesis. All of these aspects of critical thinking provide them a sound foundation for further study of science and awaken them to the marvels of the world they live in.
