Kid Power

Listening to Joe Bruno and Shirley Ann Jackson proves that something can suck and blow at the same time.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.
