Category: Juvenile Nonfiction
Connect students in grades PK–1 with science using Do and Discover Science. This 64-page book features 15 lessons that demonstrate that science is a part of everyday life. Cross-curricular activities explore magnets, sink and float, gases and bubbles, rolling balls and ramps, bugs and butterflies, plants, and the human body. This book challenges students to use higher thought processes, learn new vocabulary, and develop more-complex language skills. All activities use common household items, and the book supports National Science Education Standards.
13th International Conference, DS 2010, Canberra, Australia, October 6-8, 2010, Proceedings
Author: Bernahrd Pfahringer
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
th This volume contains the papers presented at the 13 International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2010) held in Canberra, Australia, October 6–8, 2010. The main objective of the Discovery Science (DS) conference series is to provide an open forum for intensive discussions and the exchange of new ideas and information among researchers working in the area of automating sci- ti?c discovery or working on tools for supporting the human process of disc- ery in science. It has been a successful arrangement in the past to co-locate the DS conference with the International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory (ALT). This combination of ALT and DS allows for a comprehensive treatment of the whole range, from theoretical investigations to practical app- cations. Continuing in this tradition, DS 2010 was co-located with the 21st ALT conference (ALT 2010). The proceedings of ALT 2010 were published as a twin volume (6331) of the LNCS series. The international steering committee of the Discovery Science conference - ries providedimportantadvice on a number of issues during the planning of D- coveryScience2010.

We received 43 full-paper submissions out of which 25 long papers were - cepted for presentation and are published in this volume.
16th International Conference, DS 2013, Singapore, October 6-9, 2013, Proceedings
Author: Johannes Fürnkranz
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Discovery Science, DS 2013, held in Singapore in October 2013, and co-located with the International Conference on Algorithmic Learning Theory, ALT 2013. The 23 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 52 submissions. They cover recent advances in the development and analysis of methods of automatic scientific knowledge discovery, machine learning, intelligent data analysis, and their application to knowledge discovery.
4th International Conference, DS 2001, Washington, DC, USA, November 25-28, 2001 Proceedings
Author: Klaus P. Jantke
These are the conference proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2001). Although discovery is naturally ubiquitous in s- ence, and scientific discovery itself has been subject to scientific investigation for centuries, the term Discovery Science is comparably new. It came up in conn- tion with the Japanese Discovery Science project (cf. Arikawa's invited lecture on The Discovery Science Project in Japan in the present volume) some time during the last few years. Setsuo Arikawa is the father in spirit of the Discovery Science conference series. He led the above mentioned project, and he is currently serving as the chairman of the international steering committee for the Discovery Science c- ference series. The other members of this board are currently (in alphabetical order) Klaus P. Jantke, Masahiko Sato, Ayumi Shinohara, Carl H. Smith, and Thomas Zeugmann. Colleagues and friends from all over the world took the opportunity of me- ing for this conference to celebrate Arikawa's 60th birthday and to pay tribute to his manifold contributions to science, in general, and to Learning Theory and Discovery Science, in particular. Algorithmic Learning Theory (ALT, for short) is another conference series initiated by Setsuo Arikawa in Japan in 1990. In 1994, it amalgamated with the conference series on Analogical and Inductive Inference (AII), when ALT was held outside of Japan for the first time.
Kantorovich analyzes the notion of discovery. He views the process as inference and questions whether there is logic or method to discovery. He provides an alternative perspective on scientific discovery that explains the difficulties in finding a satisfactory method of discovery. Within the framework of evolutionary epistemology, discovery is treated as a phenomenon in its own right having psychological and social dimensions. Science is viewed as a continuation of the evolutionary process whereby creative discovery plays a role similar to blind mutation in biological evolution. From this perspective, serendipity and tinkering are key notions in understanding the creative process.
