So Bummed I Missed It!
I am so intrigued by this. A World Science Festival! I had no idea. I definitely want to try to take the girls to this next year. We spend hours, and I mean HOURS at science museums. But this sounds even cooler. I wish people were doing this kind of thing back in the 70's.
I thought the OpEd in the New York Times that was linked to the festival site made some great points. I wish he had made some concrete suggestions for improving science education. Taking it away from the "technical mastery" to more of the "let's think about the big questions".
Thanks to Hasta los Gatos Quieren Zapatos for the link. Turns out I learn a lot from those ladies - thanks chicas.
