I read many reviews of the science museums in the South on the website, "Tripadvisor.com" , which help to describe them as poor in educational exhibits than the institutions in Northern states. i.e. Chicago and New York. Do you think that the lack of resources and religion are some of the reasons for poor science education in the Southern States?

Naa... Schools might do One Trip to a Science museum with one grade level.


So Not having them does not make much of a difference in the Level of teaching science.

DeKalb County has there own district Science Center

Fernbank Science Center...Where Science Becomes an Adventure

But it hurts for funding...

You generalize too much.

Orlando Science Center - Orlando - Reviews of Orlando Science Center - TripAdvisor

Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center (Shreveport) on TripAdvisor: Hours, Address, Reviews

Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center - Mobile - Reviews of Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center - TripAdvisor

Discovery Place (Charlotte, NC): Hours, Address, Reviews - TripAdvisor

Discovery Science Place (Tyler, TX): Hours, Address, Reviews - TripAdvisor

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex - Cape Canaveral - Reviews of Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex - TripAdvisor

I could go on but I think the point is made. You obvious have a bias, and that's fine. But at least be honest and admit it.

Oh and the crazies are a lot closer to Chicago than they are to Texas.

About three miles from Indiana in fact...
