As you'll notice, Brainy Girls has gotten a bit of a makeover.  A bit darker, a bit creepier, a bit more October.  Ahhhh, October.  My favorite month!  Not only is the weather changing - cooling down, leaves turning colors, the smell of autumn in the air, but at the end of the month is my favorite holiday.  Yay Halloween!!!  Any holiday that combines candy and dressing up in costumes is ok in my book.  And since I love candy, and I love costumes, well, me and Halloween are a natural match.  So, you might be seeing some scary things happening at Brainy Girls this month.

But don't let that frighten you off - I've still got lots of interesting things planned for the month of October.  For example, did you know that October 3rd is National Virus Appreciation Day?  Yes, indeed.  You'll hear more about that, well, the day after tomorrow.  And, October 4-10 is World Space Week.  Why does it start in the middle of the week?  I'll tell you all about it.  Plus, in honor of World Space Week, I'll be posting an article on the latest Mars Rover mission, so keep an eye out for that.  Also, I'm particularly excited about our "Work It" feature.  I don't want to reveal it right now, but I've got an interview scheduled for this week...with someone in Alaska!  But that's all the hints you will be'll have to wait until next week to see who I've gotten to talk with!

And for those of you into computers, October happens to be National Cyber Security Awareness Month.  So ratchet up your antivirus settings and avoid those viruses (unless it's October 3, which is Virus Appreciation Day)!  Oh!  And I almost forgot - October is also great because the 29th is National Cat Day!  And cats are awesome, so yay cats!

Happy October - don't forget to stop back soon and see what's new!
