To inspire a generation of tech entrepreneurs who can change the world, the Foresight Institute has come up with a simple but brilliant plan: give students an optimistic vision for the future. To do this, Foresight is launching a Youth Outreach pilot program that will send a set of books to the top 300 science and engineering college clubs, high school STEM educators, and youth programs for gifted students in the US. This will be followed up with an essay contest for students to write about the vision of the future presented in the books.
Great idea. Every educational institution everywhere should be doing this.
