Wired to Learn

It's a long weekend here in Australia and I spent part of the weekend with my family in Canberra. My nephew, Hamish (aged 1) was there and a delight to watch. 
He was fascinated by a Newton's Cradle.

I, in turn, was fascinated as to how a 1-year old, with limited motor skills, would manipulate the Newton's Cradle to create the kinetic energy effect that caught his eye.

The video captures the ingenuity of a 1-year old.
We are truly wired to learn!
