Friend daughter and I went to the first annual Math and Science Night at school and what a show! The turnout was terrific, stations fun and cheerfully staffed with parent volunteers. This was a warm up event for the Science Olympics next year. I think many kids will be gung ho to build egg drop containers, can rollers and participate in the Science Quiz Bowl. Friend son's team took second overall in the Quiz Bowl last year.
Basketball season is off to a great start with practices this week. Friend husband is getting into the swing of things coaching the girl's fifth grade team. Here is a link to a short animation I built in my Intro to Flash class this week in honor of the season.
