Improving Science Education

Slate has a contest of sorts to pick out proposals for new and interesting methods to engage younger kids on the topics of science and mathematics.

My friend Ryan has one proposal in this contest that’s particularly good and based off the product in this TED video.

His proposal is to engage elementary age kids with a more expansive type of building experience (think: Lego). One that has real world applications, however, using littleBits electronic, magnetic and engineering applications.

So go vote for his proposal!

Vote here.
