Yes a hundred times. And you know what! these people exist! We live in a pretty cool time when folks like Adam Savage and Kari Byron, and Bill Nye and Neil deGrasse Tyson (thanks Michael Schurr ) have fan clubs.

So how do we create more of these amazing people for our students to love and follow?
How do teachers become these people?

I think the trick is to use STEM in ways that are relevant to kids. That's the one thing all those people above have found a way to do!
