“Engaged and Enlightened Tinkering”

“What students need to be learning is how to reason and problem-solve and be creative. Kids should get rewarded for taking a chance and trying something new and not always have to be so worried about making a mistake.”

~Adele Diamond, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry at the University of British Columbia
