And we wonder why…

We wonder why the US keeps falling behind in science…

I vaguely remember hearing something about model rocket builders having trouble with the feds but I kind of forgot about it. Now there is a tale of more federal stupidity detailed on BoingBoing.

Like any self-respecting geek I did my share of model rocket building in my youth. I also spent hours experimenting with my chemistry set. Although I wasn’t that deeply involved in either they both supported my love of science which has served me well in life.

There are many problems with our educational system (95% of which is not the fault of teachers) and this is just another example of how we shoot ourselves in the foot. If we want to remain a world leader in science we have to foster that curiosity in our youth.
