It is often thought that creativity is about the arts. This can be true of dance, sculpture, painting and drawing, for example, as these can all foster creativity. But it is also possible to be creative in scientific ways. Creative-scientific explorations can involve problem-solving, testing an idea to see if it works or is true, investigating, discovering and inventing. Creativity was traditionally thought to be limited to a special set of ‘creative’ people, however, we can all be creative given the opportunity.
