The Foundations of Science Video Series
The Foundations of Science introduces children to the wonders of the natural world in light of God’s providential care over creation.
Too often we hear messages that science is in conflict with faith, but Pope St. John Paul II wrote that faith and science “each can draw the other into a wider world, a world in which both can flourish.” Foundations seeks to spawn this flourishing in the hearts and minds of young readers, guiding them into a world that will delight their imaginations and inspire awe in the awesome power of God.
Accompanying the text book and workbook, this video series seeks to challenge students to think more deeply about the world around them, setting them off on a search to discover God in the hidden corners of his creation. Hosted by Foundations editor Brian Kennelly, each video uses a short review of the chapter’s content as a platform to discuss a host of spiritual topics that reveal the truths of the Catholic Faith.
In Earth: Exploring Our Home, such talks will explore . . .
- how the pull of the earth’s magnetic field is similar to the call of God in our souls;
- how the processes of erosion and weathering can be used to help us understand the destructive power of sin;
- how a study of the earth’s layered atmosphere can lead to a discussion of the concentric spheres of Dante’s Paradiso;
- how the warning mechanisms used in RADAR can be like the warnings we find in scripture from the prophets and from Our Lord about a sinful life;
- how the earth’s water cycle can be a helpful metaphor for our prayers and the workings of grace;
- . . . and more.
The Foundations of Science video series seeks to reward those who are willing to explore and investigate the wonder and beauty of God’s world, so that we can discover that all things, both big and small, point back to him.
