I have the immense pleasure of attending the state Science teachers’ convention in Houston, TX this week. On top of getting 2 days “off” work, I get to meet and greet some of the biggest minds in local Science circles and get inspired to change minds and challenge ideas in my classroom. So far I’ve attended a session on writing grants and gotten examples of winning grant applications. (*Disclaimer: I’m writing this in between sessions on the floor outside of one of the rooms, waaaaay prior to posting this, November 12th actually.)

This afternoon I have a fun time planned with Sceicne Vocabulary Games and STEM skills. (For anyone wanting to know, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.) And yes, I really do consider that to be a fun time. Granted, this is before the sessions and I might be singing a different tune later, but I’m thinking positive. This evening is going to be capped by goodies in the Exhibit Hall and a performance by Arc Attack! Any idea? Yeah, me neither. After some impressive googling, I discovered that they are a band, kinda, sorta. Instead of using traditional speakers, they use mini Telsa Coils to create sounds. Apparently they have been featured on America’s Got Talent and are one of the semifilnalists. (I’ll be honest, if it’s not on my TiVo, I haven’t seen it. Guess what I don’t record?) The videos on YouTube on incredible and the show should be amazing. I’ll let you know…
