A girl and her cat take on the world with nothing more than a cup of tea and a good book and enough dreams to fill the universe.

Up and Up

Sometimes in life we are wrong about things. I think I may have been wrong about this NASA project. Yes, I still believe that we may have too many people involved. I am still confused about our final goal. Yet, it’s not horrible. It’s actually kind of shaping up to be a fun and fairly rewarding experience. I don’t exactly look forward to going to this job yet, but I’m not dreading it either. I’m moving from frustration to indifference and hopefully, I will move on to enjoyment. Each time we meet, the project gets better and it gets easier.


And a noteworthy highlight of all this, is my science notebook lives! NASA requires each student who receives funding to present at NAS and I am being allowed to use my science notebook idea. What’s even more encouraging is that one of the faculty members actually encouraged me to tweak my idea to a blogging concept. Here’s the revamped idea: students will blog about their experiences (I stressed that these can be anything from vlogs to picture narratives) and on Thursdays I will have an Awesome Science blog round up where the students will post links to my blog post in the comments section. I am also encouraging them to tweet at #cscawesomescience a couple of weeks. I especially hope that they post links to the videos of liquid nitrogen volcanoes they found. Once a month, I will go through and collect all the tweets from that month to create a timeline which I will post here. This will then be presented as a look at social media platforms used as a learning aid in the sciences.


I really, really hope this works.

So, things are not all bad and things are looking up. I have high hopes for this project; let’s see where it goes.
