New study: Even six-year-olds can think scientifically. Why early support is important

Mr. Osterhaus, even six-year-olds can think scientifically. You found that out in one of the most comprehensive studies to date with daycare and elementary school children. What does scientific thinking mean in children so young? Even young children have a basic understanding of what it means to test their own hypotheses, i.e. assumptions. The tests we did can be imagined like this: the children are told a little story, for example, where someone wants to find out something. The children then judge what would be a good experiment to explore that question and test the assumption.
