WHIZ KIDS
Speaker: Bonnie Blackwell, Co-Director of the
Robert F. Kennedy Research Institute, which
educates high school students, like the "Whiz
Kids," about Archeology and Paleontology
Members $9  Public $13 (includes reception)
At a time when American teens lag far behind other countries in math and science, Whiz
Kids tells the story of three remarkable 17-year-old scientists who vie to compete in
the nation's most prestigious science competition. Win or lose, these 'whiz kids' raise
questions about class, courage, personal sacrifice, success and failure, and in the process,
learn as much about themselves as they do about science. Over the past decade, countries
like China and India vastly increased support for research and development, while U.S.
funding remained largely stagnant. Not surprisingly, U.S. teens now rank 24th in the world
in math and science. As global economies become increasingly competitive, America's
future rests on the shoulders of our next generation. The main characters in
Whiz Kids demonstrate that American students can meet that challenge.
USA, 2009, 82 Mins., color  Director: Tom Shepard
