I love that CRS children are given the opportunities to engage in hands-on activities that promote exploration, creativity, investigation, deep thinking, hypothesizing, and questioning. Watching their faces light up and hearing them say: “I get it!” or “How can that be?” are some of my favorite moments at CRS because it demonstrates authentic learning and understanding of their knowledge which they are then able to apply to a new situation.
