If you’re trying to get a handle on the post immediately below, here’s the overview pitch:
In the 1970s and 80s, Johnny Ball and his team at the BBC did a terrific job of inspiring British children towards mathematics, science and engineering.
That was then. But now, it’s 2006. Suppose you want to provide similar sorts of inspiration for children today: how do you do it?
Well, I made science TV for children for almost ten years (I actually made more series than Johnny Ball did), and this project is my first big stab at answering that question. I want to take all that video experience, mix it up with my general web geekery, and make something wonderful for the next generation of technically-minded children.
I now have half the funding I need. Who else wants in?
