Description

Kids today navigate through a reality that previous generations could never have imagined. Popular culture, whether in the form of entertainment, chatrooms, or pseudoscience, is a turbulent and unpredictable sea. Too often, what seem to be beacons of light are nothing more than illusions: quick-fixes and easy answers just don’t hold up.



Too much for kids? We don’t think so. In fact, we think kids are uniquely situated to enjoy a new “Age of Discovery.” Where others may see turbulent seas and dangerous impasses, we see opportunities—to create, to forge new paths, to open new communications, to tell new stories. And the best part is, the tools have been around for ages: science, reason, and skepticism remain the best means by which to navigate these unpredictable waters.
