Following on from my post yesterday about the shape of things in the natural world, I admit that I hadn`t thought about crystals and minerals and all that kind of thing. But, then.... I never did science at school, so it`s outside my sphere of knowledge.
When I went to school (alright I admit it`s a good number of years ago now) Girls didn`t do science.
Infact the subjects were very much divided into some for boys and some for girls.... girls did - Needlework, Domestic Science.. which was cooking, and Biology (plants and animals), whilst the boys did Science, Woodwork and Metalwork. And, there were no computers and calculators. I wonder how we managed to add up and subtract sums!
What a difference to todays schools.
