Scientific problems are not generally discovered by those who sit and idly dream of ease and pleasure, but are found by those who walk through nature with eyes open and all the senses awake to the myriad question marks that are encountered at every turn of the road. Every boy and girl may acquire the scientific turn of mind without the use of a laboratory fitted with expensive apparatus, although all great scientists do their most valuable research in such laboratories. What the science teacher of our public schools needs to do is to direct young life to be always on the alert for the problems which are to be met at every turn.
