I just love your curated picks. Wonder and awe

Crystal clear. I truly cannot understand why we don't make any profit of this at schools. As a related issue, also absolutely worthy for  those high skilled learners at our own schools, instead of searching only  for individual gateways.

Let our kids teach. They will learn more.

What can we do to get the other 2/3 to engage?
