The Great Power Race!

"The higher we soar, the smaller we appear to those who cannot fly."
 - Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

I love that quote, which I found when searching for thoughts about competition. A little healthy competition can be a good thing. And the competition I'm going to tell you about is a very good thing. It's called 
and is sponsored by one of my favorite groups,

The really great thing about this particular competition is that, in the long run, there are no real losers. :)

That said, it looks like the U.S. is already in last place:
India has registered 214 schools!
China brings in 2nd place with 173 schools,
and the USA currently has 98 schools signed up.

The race has begun . . .  :)

Happy Summer!

Hey, Kids! I hope you're enjoying your summer and finding some creative time! If you work on any special projects over the summer, be sure to bring them in to share with the class when school starts up again.

In the meantime, 
Stay Cool!
