I saw a show with Ian Russell, and I found it inspiring and informative. He is excellent at asking questions and interact with his audience, while teaching science. He made some good points I will share here.
He talks about how children are curious and asks questions, while grown-ups tend not to. Why is that? Why do we stop questioning things? Ian encourages us to become more curious of our surroundings, to ask questions and to investigate. I am sure a lot of the kids watching his show, started their own experiments when they got home. Mine did.
What about us grown-ups? Most of the grown-ups on the show were there because of their children. They did not want to raise their hands and share their opinion when Russell asked question.
