Another thought I had (tho not educational) was for climate change, to allow people to connect temperature sensors to the blockchain to give a global measurements. Then everyone can be sure that the data hasn't been tampered with , it might help with climate sceptics . You could do some adjustments if the data looked wrong, but the rules to do that would be in a contract so it would increase trust

I don't think we necessarily need to go educational. Just something we would want to see built.
I think you've hit on a really good point regarding measurements + trust.
Perhaps something digital only would reduce the scope and make sure we will deliver?
