I've finally decided I've got to figure out this "Blog" thing... Is it just a journal entry, a rant about a supposed injustice, or just blowing off steam to sooth the soul ?
I'm calling this month "Thing-a-week-month" and So far , So good. I've Made Peanut Brittle , Pineapple-Ginger Preserves, NewOrleans Pralines, and Fruitcake-coconut Muffin cookies.
I'm guessing it must be mainly a journal of events that have either just taken place or are in the planning stages of becoming something that a Maker could brag about.
We had a great time with the Community Science & Technology Night.
There were four news crews out to cover the event. Cynthia Kramer with SCOPE Missouri did a great job raising awareness of science and technology which also provided us an pportunity to get our message out about Make:KC.
Check out this one from NBC Action News: Inner City Youth Get Science Exposure.
