The process of science making is narrative. It consists of spinning hypotheses about nature, testing them, correcting hypotheses, and getting one's head straight. En route to producing testable hypotheses, we play with ideas, try to create anomalies, try to find neat puzzle forms that we can apply... . Our instruction in science from start to finish should be mindful of the lively process of science making, rather than being an account only of "finished science" as represented in a textbook.
