High School Science Blogging
It has given me much food for thought for my classroom, but unfortunately I think I need to teach them how to use Word and Excel before starting with a Twitter discussion group. I am hoping that e-learning (Blackboard) will help with teaching this semester.
There are more pictures from the different sessions I attended on Flickr.
I had some time to spare so I went to “Knit a Bit”, Chapel Hill’s Yarn store. Conveniently placed, IMO, near a Whole Foods market and a Great Harvest is just up the street.
I can’t say that I bought more than I planned as I had not planned on buying anything. As they had soy silk and bamboo yarns I just had to get more colors in different yarn types to match.
I’m going to knit a modular – freestyle waistcoat. I can just see it in my mind’s eye.
I have not had a chance to knit any of the yarns yet and now I am going to dinner with these guys. Let the science blogging conference begin!
I’m off to meet the rest of the science bloggers at the North Carolina Science Blogging Conference. It’s this Saturday.
I think there are a few spaces left, so check it out and come along. Put some faces to names and names to faces. Enjoy chatting to a bunch of people proud to be nerds and have fun writing about science. Come to a group dinner and get some good food in good company. All while discussing science and blogging. What more fun could be had.
OK – so I immediately think that there must be a way to include some folk music into this weekend some how. Then it would be a perfect weekend. I’ve already decided to check out local yarn stores.
Still science, blogging, friendly people, good food…fun weekend.
I’ll be blogging from the conference, hopefully – so watch this space!
