The President of the Royal Society on public engagement with science

What? What's that you say, Martin Rees? You say scientists need encouragement to engage with the public? That there's a big educational problem because young people who have an intrinsic interest in science (the big three: dinosaurs, space and tadpoles) somehow lose that interest due to poor (read "boring") instruction? That we must ensure young people are not turned off scientific careers?

Ahem.
