Biobus- A cool way for your kids to learn science!

I love the whole concept of a traveling science labs. Check out Biobus! Too many schools in the U.S. don't even have a science lab in their premises. We need to have such innovative businesses and tools to help our children develop a greater interest in science and technology. Currently, in the U.S., there is such a shortage of scientists, that mnay companies are having to outsource internationally. This is mind boggling. In our present recession, where unemployment rate is at such a high peak, it is crazy to think that we are having to outsource many of our scientists, engineers, and so on simply because we don't have enough qualified workers with such high level technical skill. This has to change if we want to continue to keep jobs within the U.S. and have our economy stay strong. I believe in the concept of allowing your child choose a profession that they are passionate about. However, I feel at the same time, that we are not giving our children equal opportunity by not allowing them to embrace more difficult subjects like science and math. What do you think?
