Welcome and Welcome Back!!


Hi Everyone! It's great to be back. After an excellent summer I feel completely rejuvenated and ready for an amazing year of science discovery. I did a bunch of great, sciencey things this summer, most of which I will tell you about I'm sure. I read some terrific science books, took a chemistry class, wrote curriculum for a coming summer program at a local school, and spent a good portion of time near the ocean. One of my favorite trips this summer was a mushroom gathering trip I took with a friend of mine who is an amateur mycophile (someone who gathers mushrooms). We found a lot of amazing mushrooms, some edible and some not. This is a picture of me with the "Chicken of the Woods" that we found. Later that evening, I cooked it up and ate it!

Respond to this post by letting me know something sciencey that you did this summer.

hello Dan this summer I went rowing in the Schuylkill river and the sciency thing about that is momentum. My proof is that when I was in a pinner which is the second to thinnest boat I noticed when I stopped rowing the boat came to a near stop.

Over the summer, I helped my sister with her frogs, researched a program on space and read lots and lots of books. Does that count? The program is called celestia. My book on space was called "THE UNIVERSE" cool huh?
