Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson gives National School Boards Association conference a lesson in STEM


Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson


Q and A with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, featured speaker at NSBA’s annual conference

"Neil deGrasse Tyson isn’t going to tell you how to run your schools, or even how to teach science. The astrophysicist and director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City says school board members probably have a better handle on these things.

“I’m just sort of a STEM person at large,” said Tyson, former host of “NOVA scienceNOW” and one of the keynote speakers at NSBA’s Annual Conference in San Diego in April. “It’s a report from the field, a report from the depths of our society and culture.”
