FSU working on improving science education

Florida State University chemistry professor and Nobel laureate Harold Kroto is apparently working on some ideas to improve science education. If I’m reading the story correctly, he’s assembling various resources into one program using modern technology. It looks like accessibility to all this information through one source is the key and the aim is to serve a global audience. It’s not clear to me what makes this “revolution” unique among other similar programs, though.

I especially like this quote:

“Of course, science must be used wisely, and the only way to ensure that is by good education. Ignorance allied with irrationality will surely be disastrous.  And if we don’t (do this), we’re going to have a problem, because the issue that we face today is sustainability,” Kroto said.
