The Last Two Weeks of Summer

Tue, Aug 19, 2014

“Rocket Camp” has to be one of the best decisions I’ve made as a parent this summer. Run by the good folks at Mad Science, they’ve occupied the rectory of a local church and have taken on kids for a week of rockets, rocket safety, rocket related games, the whole gamut. And I’m pleased to say that while there are a majority of boys at this camp, Vivian and Nora aren’t the only girls. Three other girls are with them. They come home very excited about their day, and have a lot to tell me about launches, and parachutes landing in people’s yards. Really, if you want to get more girls into science and engineering, the job starts now — actually, it started long before now, but I feel like I’ve given them a good boost.

I’ve not had much to say on this blog of late, but I have been busy writing. In addition to last week’s post, here are some more things I’ve written:

I’ve also been conducting further revisions to The Night Girl, so I’m really keeping busy… just not on this blog. I’ll see what I can do about that.
