It’s not often that I hang out with astrophysicists during my day. But if they’re anything like Neil deGrasse Tyson (director of the Hayden Planetarium), I’ll make it a point to more often! My interview with him for The Parent Show reminded me of what I truly love about kids..their creative process. They’re not all about getting the right answer..but the creative journey that takes place while learning. This inquisitive nature of children allows them to make ideal budding scientists. Take a guess who often gets in their way though?
Oh, and he loved our Blue’s Clues “Sink and Float” game with Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper (physics for preschoolers!) and our Blue’s Clues Planets episode (which was displayed at NASA!)
