Science Night

Wow, that was spectacular!

Thank you all so much for Science Night last night…..it was even better that I imagined!

Your presenters were awesome, as always, and the constant sound of happy, excited, exploring students echoed down the halls as a constant hum………..a beautiful thing.

The students are on their way to a new year of science…..thank you so much for being a part of that!

Synopsys Fair

Hi Belinda:

Here is a little note to share with your husband: at the Synopsys fair I was scanning all the projects looking for ones that demonstrated hands-on ingenuity. The one that really caught my eye was a water-powered crane.

The young inventor was so excited about it, and so knowledgeable.

I asked him who the man was in the picture on his board, and he said “Mr. Schmahl.” He went on to say how helpful Mr. S. was in helping him overcome the practical challenges that cropped up. He clearly got exactly the mentoring he needed.

It’s no surprise that the 1 student who caught my eye out of 1000 in the room was one of yours! Another wonderful example of SSW in action.
