Science Debate 2008

Each day, we have a new opportunity to promote space in this years election: Sciencedebate2008

Even when a question was asked at the Youtube debate about space exploration, the candidates took it lightly.

Participants from across government, industry, and academia are organizing a debate to be held specifically about science issues. They need our support!

  • Go sign the petition
  • Fax the Candidates and tell them that they need to participate and even promote this event

I signed the petition. Thanks, I had not heard anything about this!

It occurs to me, that if the graduating HS seniors in Washington State have to pass a standardized test that covers math, science, reading and writing, that I would think it only fair that our Presidential Candidates also prove that they can pass this same test. My hunch is that many could not...

I looked over WASL tesp-prep questions and found this:

Wouldn't it be great if our elected officials had to pass this sort of test we subject our High School students to?

take care. mjl
