Few things come more naturally to children than star gazing. STARSCAPES® is as tailor made for your children’s room as bunk beds for kids are. But the true value of this amazing product is that it helps your kids connect with things that are bigger than all of us — science, the world at large, and the universe as a whole.
Scientists, science fiction writers, and just plain old geeks like us often talk about “a sense of wonder.” That’s the emotion that happens when city slickers like this writer go on a camping or backpacking trip and suddenly see thousands of stars in the sky. “Where’d all those amazing stars come from?” Suddenly, it’s easy to understand how ancient man must have felt when confronted with this amazing light show in the sky.
A sense of wonder is what motivated most of the world’s greatest scientists. Certainly, Copernicus, Einstein, and Richard Feynman were motivated by awe at the universe’s mysteries as much at the end of their careers as at the beginning. Even if your kids are not going to choose science as a profession, curiosity about life, creation, and the universe is never a bad thing. It’s important to care about things that are larger than oneself.
STARSCAPES® is one outstanding method to instill these feelings. The inhabitants of bunk beds for kids are going to spend some time talking as they slowly drift off to sleep. They might as well talk about something important. It’s one way to remind them of life’s really big topics among the usual chatter about friends, pop stars, teachers they can’t stand, the latest online games, and other normal nonsense.
Of course, that’s just a start. You want to introduce your kids to astronomy and the all the sciences in a number of ways and there are a host of good books, films, and television shows that are appropriate for children and great ways to get them hooked on the universe. Another bonus is that you can teach them how to become independently wealthy with their own fun home business. However you do it, you want your kids to think big. STARSCAPES® will help.
