Trevdak had the lucky opportunity to attend a Neil deGrasse Tyson lecture at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. During the speech, Neil took a question from an adorable first grader who asked, “How can first graders help the earth?”

His answer was simple. He explained to parents that they should all let their kids play with the pots and pans and to splash in puddles. They’re conducting experiments and they could be the next great inventor or scientist if you just allow them to express themselves!
