I still don't really know what that last one was about, but hey, the judges did and he made it all the way to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the largest science fair in the world. I had the opportunity to attend ISEF as a teacher observer when another one of my students was selected to attend.
|I think there are around 2000 projects and they were all amazing!|
I really enjoyed my job, but I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to these sort of things, so I had to quit. I couldn't be an awesome (supposedly) part-time teacher and an awesome (mostly) stay-at-home mom of 3, so I had to choose one and I chose to be the stay-at-home mom of my three young kids.
But before I quit, I (along with my co-teacher, who also quit) were asked to run the district-level fair for all the charter schools that lie within the Salt Lake Region, 7 school districts from Park City to Tooele. So now I have a new project to put energy into. This has been purely a volunteer thing, but hopefully it can turn into a paying gig. The google forms we were using for the hundreds of registrations just weren't cutting it, so I made Matt program a website that would do everything from registrations to scoring. The web program he made might now be used for all the districts in our region. I like to brag about him, if you can't tell.
|Matt also made a logo, because we can't be a legitimate organization |
without a logo, right? Also, Matt is awesome.
