Overview

What is missing in most curricula - from elementary school all the way

through to university education - is coursework focused on the

development of problem-solving skills. Most students never learn how to

remarkable job of convincing students that (a) science is useful and

not that scary (no need to hate it!), and (d) it is worthwhile to stay in

school, get a degree, and move into the real world which is loaded with

interesting problems (problems perceived as real-world puzzles).
