Issue 10 | Discovering Science

Science constitutes a vast network of ideas, experiments, tools, methods, and purposes handed down by a great assembly of philosophers and scientists—from Aristotle to Francis Collins, from Albertus Magnus to Madame Curie. How can we possibly teach the next generation to understand the scope and structure of the Scientific Project, such an astonishing repository of inherited knowledge? This issue includes Dr. Jon Fennell on Michael Polanyi, Great Hearts alumnus and engineer Carlos Trevino, John D. Mays on mastery learning in the science classroom, master teacher Dominic Martel on science as a liberal art, and two poems by J. C. Scharl.
