Exxon commercials during the Olympics try to make science and engineering look attractive to kids by showing nothing but equations. Okay, there’s a few semi-hip looking scientists and engineers talking about how they grew up being curious, taking things apart, figuring out how stuff works. Oh yeah, and equations. And then some more equations.
Disney World has it all wrong.
C’mon kids, it’s fun! Look – EQUATIONS!!!
Edit: Originally I wrote that it was Chevron’s commercial, but it’s actually from Exxon. You can tell the commercial had a big impact on me.
