Apologies to the namesake clothing chain… but life is all about the gap!
There is the
gap in knowledge,
gap in beliefs
gap in trust
gap between individuals who have complementary talents… individuals who think alike but are separated by a gap – a sea of people so that they may never meet…
gap separating people who are physically together but mentally apart…
One major gap to bridge is that of the perception that science is somehow an esoteric fuzzy world not to be understood.
To bring the world of science to the community is a worthwhile effort. To spark the creativity and imagination of children, the holders to tomorrow’s dreams, is rewarding.
True science is not what is written in the school text books… not the facts alone… but is a way of thinking.
To be able to approach the world with curiosity, alert observation and inquisitiveness- that is the unlimited world of a scientist. There is never room for boredom, as there are so many unanswered questions. To the scientist, there are no answers, only hypotheses and tests of hypotheses. Science is where the dreamers and creative thinkers belong. The world of science is challenging, frustrating, fascinating and exciting all at once.
The gap between known and unknown is what drives the engine of scientific discovery… This gap can never be filled… and the questions can never all be answered…..
