While researching attitudes toward Science, I just read this.. had to
pass it on :)
"A good many years ago a teenager...visited Princeton University. There
she encountered an instantly recognizable figure: Albert Einstein. The
eminent scientist was staring raptly at a fountain.
=93He was tilting his head this way and that, and sometimes moving his
hands rapidly up and down,=94 she remembers. =93I stood beside him,
puzzled. He said nothing for quite some time. Then he turned to me and
said, =91Can you do it? Can you stop the stream enough to see individual=
droplets of water?=92=94
Einstein showed the young student how to move her hands to synchronize
them with the flow and create a strobe effect that froze the droplets. =
As they left the fountain, he told her, =91Never forget that science is
just that kind of exploring and fun.=92 (Fisher, 1992, p.50)"
