In the meantime, ponder this: the Brainy Girls theme for the month of October (ok, and the rest of September) is "Nice to Meet You". Since Brainy Girls soon be introducing ourselves to the Interwebs, I would like to say that, yes indeed, it is nice to meet ALL of you! And since we have a theme, it means that a lot of the content that will be featured on this blog (i.e., Feature Essays and Work It) will follow this theme. So, what does "nice to meet you" mean to you? Who would you like to meet, and why? Who would you NOT like to meet? I'll be giving you some potential answers to those questions mega-soon. But if you want to chime in, feel free to leave a comment below, or contact me through the Feedback page.
Anywhooooooo...enough of that. Take a look at this video and guess who these girls got to meet at the White House Science Fair earlier this year...yup - our very own POTUS (that's President of the United States fyi)! And it was clear that he was very impressed by what these girls had dreamed up and built. Be sure to watch the last part of the video to hear what advice these girls have for others. You might have an itty bitty dream growing in your mind that could some day - and sooner than you think - turn into a BIG idea! Way to represent, young scientists!
