You may know will.i.am — assuming you know him at all — as the frontman for the Black Eyed Peas. You probably don’t know he’s now the director of creative innovation at Intel. And that he’s leading a push for better science and technology education in our schools. Which is why he’s teamed up with Dean Kamen — the guy who invented the Segway scooter — and Kamen’s foundation called FIRST, or For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.
