“If my words are against science one day, choose science.”

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk


What makes human beings go beyond the world they perceive with their senses is their sense of wonder. As well as hard work and discipline, the importance of curiosity enabled people to travel outside Earth’s atmosphere into space to understand the structure of cells or to divide matter into atoms. Everything we know about ourselves and the universe we owe to this.


We also try to do this at Üsküdar American Academy: keep our students’ imaginations alive and awaken their curiosity. In the words of one philosopher, “What is now proved was once only imagined.” Perhaps, through the scientific methods and techniques that they learn, the things that children imagine today, they will prove tomorrow.
