While appreciating the young students, Dr. Shimray stated that their active participation abundantly demonstrated the scientific temperament we wish to foster in children. “The fact that the pupils are now thinking creatively and beyond the box is more significant and encouraging,” she said. “It’s important to support this since it will eventually result in something real.”
