We know that Dick and Dorothea were the children of academics, and I think that it is reasonable to assume that they would have picked up a fair bit of elementary science just from conversations at home. They could scarcely avoid it. My father was toolmaker, and I picked up a lot of engineering lore quite casually. From my mother I inherited a pretty fair artistic ability, but that was more genetic than environmental.
