Parents often ask astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson how they can help get their kids interested in science.

"Get out of their way!" Kids are born curious so they are natural explorers and experimenters. What if a parent wants to give their child an extra push towards science?  "Put things in their midst that will help them explore."
