SPC Tarpon Springs had a fun family science night. I loved seeing all the animals. We learned about circuits. We also watched an amazing science show with some rather showy funny science experiments. This is an excellent program and you should attend next year if you can!
We treated my pal Steven and his mom to a day at Busch Gardens. We had two guest passes that were due to expire soon so needed to use them up. Steven and I went off on our own for most of the day. We enjoyed rides and freedom while the moms and Emmerson hung out. It was a super fun day and I am glad we got to enjoy it.
We weren’t sure if we would get to do Young Eagles this fall. It fell on the same day as one of my midterms. I took my midterm few days early so we were able to enjoy the day. The weather was wonderful and the winds were calm. E and I got put in the same plane. E was going to sit up front but to balance weight they had me in the passenger seat not him. I felt bad for E. E made the best of it by taking lots of photos while I got to fly the plane. I always love flying and I am go grateful for this program that lets youth experience small plane flight.
Mr. James did another insect program and I was able to bring my collections out and talk about insects before and after the program. We had a much better crowd this time but it was hard to compete with the crowds of yesterdays Native Plant Event. Whatever I was saying it must have been engaging!
Emmerson tackled the younger youth questions and I fielded the harder questions. I love these outreach programs. After the event we decided that we wanted to go to Disney Springs so we took a spin out to Orlando in Dad’s new Tesla.
