Transition Read #5 – Playing with Science


Publication date: 14 Dec 2016

When do we stop playing? As a child, play was as essential to our development as food or water. We explored our world and relationships through play – travelling to imaginary lands and effortlessly through time, testing new perspectives through role play, making friends and negotiating relationships, learning how to deal with social order, conflict and obstacles. Somewhere on the path to adulthood, play – for most of us - starts to take a backseat to other forms of social engagement and interaction until it almost
disappears completely.
