Re: [Electronics_101] Re: somebody explain this induction heater for me
- They have kind of moved away from science in schools. I know my children
have questioned things and been told that is the answer don't question
it. It may have to do with most high school teachers only taking a minor
in science. As far as I have been able to determine there isn't a single
teacher at either of my kids high schools that has a BSc. They are all
HBAs who got science as a minor in teacher's college. Often they take
the minor because the demand for science, math and french teachers is
higher. I don't even think they teach the scientific method in science
class anymore... I keep telling myself it has to swing back but I don't
see any evidence of it yet.

So when you are a kid and being taught by a specialist with doctorate level knowledge saying "an atom is made up of electrons, protons, and neutrons" that is now gospel in the kids minds. Not once did our great and intelligent teachers left the door open in our mind by saying "this is the theory and the best we have - but someday one of you might do furthered research and prove it wrong"
