Doing real science can transform how we think | Isabelle Kingsley | TEDxUNISA

Isabelle Kingsley needed to confess: she was a science teacher who didn’t understand how science is done For long, science was taught to be about cold hard facts. We learnt these facts in lectures and textbooks. We wrote them down and remembered them. But scientists had discovered these cold hard facts by flying kites or sitting under apple trees. REAL science comes from REAL experiment.

Isabelle started her illustrious teaching career at 7 years old. She is a researcher who explores the science of science education. She co-founded and led the annual Sydney Science Festival to captivate the curiosity of young and old in pubs, opera theatres, alleyways and all kinds of other quirky, unexpected and entertaining places.
