    If math has you feeling buffaloed or science seems unapproachable, go watch the videos of Vi Hart at http://www.youtube.com/user/Vihart?feature=watch, please. She might be the best explainer I've ever encountered.

    If you like math and you like science, and you particularly like math-and-science, and you want to share the fun, go watch Vi Hart's videos, and then please go recommend them far and wide.

    These videos could well give some kids insight as to why they - we - should care about math and science. I just watched the one on the science of sound, and it's dazzling.

    I love that it starts off with nothing to do with math and science and then shows you even deeper math or science than you would learn in school.
