Learning, experience and independent thought

In this article on scidev.net, Ouyang Jing has written about a group of retired scientists who have been talking to school children about science and trying to make it interesting for them rather than have them memorise information delivered by their teachers.

An important part of scientific learning is for people to observe things and think about them for themself; not having them memorise statements and formulas.

Differences bewteen independent learning and imposed statements and formulas can provide many storytelling options for cinema and fiction.
