“Star Wars’ exhibit teaches tech” is the title of the article, once which just sparks the imagination. It’s a “Star Wars” fan’s dream according to Rueters. The first public display of props and costumes from all six films in the series, including a replica cockpit of Han Solo’s asteroid-battered Millennium Falcon. Apparently this exibit ran them a total of $5mil. (Now that’s a lot of stuff.)
Now that cool – the reasoning behind it isn’t bad, though I think it is worded poorly. The idea behind the exibit is because the Asian countries are getting ahead of us in engineers. Ok, maybe that is an economic problem in the future, but I think the real idea behind the exibit is better worded as “trying to spark the imagination of our youth.” Hoping more will join us in the fields of [insert engineering field here], where our numbers have been decreasing. Makes it sound less like a lame political ploy and more of an actual interest in the wellfair of our children.
That being said, it was a darn good article. Hopefully everyone will go and check it out – and come back to SGB and leave some comments on it for us.
