I know that, like me, many people feel a strong spiritual awe about nature, the cosmos and science – the evolution of our understanding and knowledge of reality. This is something we should be encouraging our kids to appreciate (The videos by Richard Dawkins Growing Up In The Universe do a great job in this respect).
Neil deGrasse Tyson is also another excellent communicator about this awe of nature and science. He is the Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Have a look at this video where he describes his own development of feeling for science, art and the cosmos. (The Google link is here. It is from his final presentation of the 2006 Beyond Belief Conference).
