Off-Topic But a Great Cause

When today's global financial system finally implodes and is (hopefully) replaced by something sustainable, one of the next big challenges will be preparing our kids for an epic technology boom. Regenerative medicine will cure diseases and replace worn-out organs, 3D printing will revolutionize the way things are made, computer-generated imagery will transform Hollywood, alternative energy will end of the reign of fossil fuels. All will create fascinating new career paths for people with the knowledge and skills to participate, making tomorrow's world a candy store for the scientifically literate and a desert for most others.

The Palouse Discovery Science Center (PDSC) has been exposing kids in rural Idaho and Washington State (many of whom attend farm-town schools with limited budgets) to science for over a decade. So it's a crucial piece of the science education puzzle out here. And now its most popular exhibit, a mini-planetarium, is reaching the end of its working life and needs a serious upgrade.

I'm on the PDSC board and have put together a crowdfunding campaign to help finance this upgrade. Donations of any size are welcome and will be put to good, immediate use. Many thanks!
