“There is no greater education than one that is self driven” –Neil deGrasse Tyson
There is so much wisdom in that statement. As a STEM Educator at the Lancaster Science Factory I can only strive to press upon young minds the reality of how intrinsic motivation, curiosity, and exploration creates a strong understanding of the world and HOW it truly works.
As an educator and parent I strive to demonstrate this to my pride and joy, my daughter Veronica. When I am not engaging young minds, I am rekindling my inspiration through tending the family farm in Western Pennsylvania or by spending time creating new flavor sensitive in the kitchen.
