Mar. 5th, 2013 @ 08:30 pm yes a second post in one day
yesterday i had a kick ass day. I took the day to judge science fairs for grades 5, 10 and 12.  I saw some very impressive work in those science fairs, work that rekindles my hope for the world.  These kids did a kickass job for their level, and I just learned that the student who did her science fair in my facility placed first in her division.  coupled with the shit in the other entry, a kick ass day indeed.

Exceedingly cool. I bet your enthusiasm for what they're doing lit them up as well.

It was a lot of fun. At one of them, the student was showing how math relates to music, but at the end of it, I was able to relate music to molecular orbital theory of molecules. I was losing hope for good students in this day and age.

I'm sure there are just as many bright ones as there have ever been. One has to wonder what happens to them along the way.

I've heard that kids who are taught music young tend to be better at math as they age than their peers. It seems to me a decent reason to have all kids learn an instrument. I can't say the ages of 3-7yrs are my favorite in children but it's amazing what their brains are absorbing during that time.
