I've gotta say, the Tech Valley Kids Summit
sounds a lot more interesting than the adult version
. Tomorrow's event at RPI is setting out to "inspire a love of math, science, engineering and technology in middle school students," and will feature hands-on sessions involving cool hi-tech stuff. Best of all? The keynote speaker is Bill Nye the Science Guy
. Nye is well known to kids and adults for his TV show that makes science and technology fun; he's the teacher we all wish we had in high school.
The summiteers will also learn that nothing in this world comes without a price. To learn that lesson, they will be forced to sit and listen to remarks from Joe Bruno and RPI President Shirley Ann Jackson.
