Edison Lecture Series Reaches Thousands of Texas Schoolchildren

Thursday, May 17, 2007 - 7:00pm

In the past 3 years, the Edison Lecture Series has inspired and informed almost 14,000 middle and high school students. Almost 8,000 have attended a live free hour-long show on The University of Texas at Austin campus. Another 6,000 students participated in Texas Connects: EDISON DAY, a day-long video conference presented by the Texas Education Telecommunications Network. Dr. Mack Grady also took the series on the road to the fifth grade science classes of Cypress Elementary in the Leander school district.
