Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology (GEOSET)
The three-minute video is one of hundreds that Kroto is collecting in a free digital database

that represents a sort of YouTube, Google, Wikipedia hybrid for science, math and technology instruction. Think of it as ``Mr. Wizard Meets the Internet,'' free and downloadable for students and teachers across all continents. The project is called GEOSET, short for Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology.
Kroto's goal is to harness modern technology to revolutionize the way schoolchildren learn science, math and technology. Already, FSU is working with researchers and professors from Scripps Florida, the University of Sheffield in England, the University of Western Australia, and the University of Otago in New Zealand. Kroto is also working on partnerships with universities in Japan, Malaysia and India.
