Steve Jurvetson

I watched his ted talk on rocket science and decided to visit his blog (Jcurve).
Which led me to this great blog GeekDad.  
I enjoyed his article called “Celebrate the child’s mind” This made me realize even more why I enjoy working with kids. 

“From what I can see, the best scientists and engineers nurture a child-like mind. They are playful, open minded and unrestrained by the inner voice of reason, collective cynicism, or fear of failure. 

Children remind us of how to be creative, and they foster an existential appreciation of the present. Our perception of the passage of time clocks with salient events. The sheer activity level of children and their rapid transformation accelerates the metronome of life.”

I have some workshops that I want to do with kids when I get back to Vancouver such as Peering in to the Black Box.
