MicroExplorers is skipping a week since I will be gone to the National Science Teacher's Association conference in Philadelphia. I am looking forward to the conference. I will lead a workshop talking about MicroExplorers. I am hoping to generate interest in spreading the club to other schools around the US. I am also doing a poster presentation about the lessons I worked on about super hydrophobic surfaces and categorizing leaves on the maco, micro, nano scale. The poster is absolutely beautiful. I will show the students the poster at the next MicroExplorers club meeting. As a recipient of the Toyota Tapestry grant I will spend a couple of hours at their table talking about MicroExplorers and how I will use the funds. Thankfully, I will also be able to go to quite a few sessions. I am registered to see Bill Nye the science guy. I am so excited. I will post pictures and updates throughout the conference.
