09/27/12 Grif.Net Blog – Not sure of the Next Generation

After spending a couple hours with some young adults, I have come to the
following conclusions:

1. Typical science student thinks the Energizer Bunny disproves that
“conservation of energy” theory.

2. Most can’t locate the earth on a globe.

3. Many think “Bill Nye the Science Guy” is a grunge band.

4. If they can’t find a Number 2 pencil for a test, they bring half of a
Number 3.

5. Some think “Algorithm” might be a former Vice President bustin’ a move on
the dance floor.

6. All have short attention span. When given a math problem, they think “5
+ 3 equals … Hey! Nickelodeon is running a Brady Bunch marathon . . . ”

And the sad part? Six out of five math teachers say there’s no problem
whatsoever.
