Sometimes, it takes a little poetry to make scientific information stick. Bowen’s Reaction Series is one of those concepts in geology that can make life a whole lot easier for students of the science. But there’s a lot there to commit to memory.
So I invite my students to write haikus about Bowen’s. I’ll share some of them here:
