Off topic, Education Outreach stuff I get to do.
« on: April 01, 2011, 07:38:41 PM »
So I love getting kids interested in science, and my job with the government give me all sorts of opportunities to do so.

The latest and greatest is a show I helped produce and star in for local elementary schools. We had our first show, and here's some pics and videos:

and I created a portal for the show we hope to expand into a resource for students and parents.

http://www.sciencebrothers.org/

We are still just out of the starting gate, so it's all a bit rough.

Maybe I'll be able to build a robot for the show, but it's hard to come up with one suitable for stage life.

Did I mention I love my job?

Nice show man!!! Well done...

As far as science goes... well... looks can be deceiving...
For whom the interrupts toll...


P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!

BTW, it doesn't seem to work in firefox. Try IE or Chrome.
