Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Enjoy!

Looks like the NY Hall of Science is up to amazing stuff lately. First, Bjork, and now all this awesome interactive “no-more-bored-kids” activities. This is the kind of stuff that I’ve been arguing that we need to see in science museums. We need to give visitors real things to do: really interactive, really hands-on (not just button-pushing), really engaging, really educational. Real experiences!
Glad to see NYSCI, amongst others, are taking these steps. Very exciting stuff! Gives me hope for education, science, and museums. (Hope I get a chance to stop by next time I visit NY… which may be sometime soon!)
