Interesting Quote: Bill Nye


"If we raise a generation of students who don't believe in the process of science, who think everything that we've come to know about nature and the universe can be dismissed by a few sentences translated into English from some ancient text, you're not going to continue to innovate,"
Bill is not a fan of making your kids dumb.

I recently attended the Brain Tank Mini-Con here in Providence. The events were held at AS220.

We sort of off the cuff said how awesome if we could get Nye to speak at next years Brain Tank Mini-Con.

So I went and looked it up. It costs $30,000 to $50,000 to book him.

So I told the group lets start fundraising. Probably setup a kickstarter page for it soon enough.

And we may have to move the venue. The RI Convention Center is actually fairly inexpensive to rent out for a day.
