How sad about the lack of access to stinks and bangs. I think access to hands-on chemistry at school did me a lot of good, and I didn't even end up a scientist - though I seriously considered it.

Taken to extremes, if you don't let kids do things, you get people who don't know how their laundry detergent works, and who can only make a cake from a packet, and so forth...

True. Those new science classes sound a poor imitation of what I used to get up to, and I’m not THAT old.
