Neil deGrasse Tyson responds to six-year-old – “How can first graders help the earth?”

2014-11-13 – I had the pleasure of attending an NDT lecture at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. Neil delivers a fantastic response to a child who wants to know her responsibilities as an earthling. He emphasizes curiosity, exploration, and fun: the perfect formula to get kids interested in science.

    Obviously he knows how to talk to kids. You realize how the girl stopped
    jitterbugging once he got to eye level of the child.
    The term seeing eye to eye more than just a saying.

    I love this guy, all he wants is for us to learn, thats it. The more you
    know the more you can help.
