Youtube Spacelab

I thought this was pretty neat. It's a science contest youtube is hosting with the primary objective being to garner interest in space exploration and the sciences among American youth. The winning experiment gets to be performed on the international space station and will be live streamed. Plus, some other neat prizes. Not to mention the intro video is narrated my Stephen Hawking.

Is this the way to garner interest in science study? Is youtube going to become an educational device? At any level? What do you think?

Wow, I think this is a great idea. I think this is a great way to help gain interest in space exploration. The rewards will definitely attract young kids to participate in this contest. I personally think that videos are great educational tools. Videos are becoming increasingly popular in classroom across the U.S. Science videos are awesome ways to clarify and engage students in the learning of that subject matter.
