The science courses in the high school are not at the present time popular, nor are the money spent upon them, either in equipment or in teaching force, comparable with their educational importance. The problem of college science is, therefore, very intimately connected with science in the secondary school. If the child were introduced to it in the proper way there the situation, which has just been described, would not exist in the college. He would come up into the college with the world of science already in existence, and that world as a field of his own experience. His sciences remain for him located between impassable barriers. The peculiar appropriateness of a course in the history of science for the junior college students lies in the fact that the special character of modem science would grow out of the conditions that made it natural and necessary.
