Update Was a blast!! Most common question of the day: "Frankie's Dad, why are you sweating so much?"
Until now, the only ones who could make me wear a tie were not alive.
Tomorrow, on the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth, I'll start an occasional series of science activities in Frankie's class.
28 kids, all will participate hands-on, we'll be working with a bunch of fizzy water and all in 20 minutes. Should be interesting. We'll all be making a dancing orzo installation and talking about nucleation, buoyancy and carbon dixoide. Not quite as focused as it should be, but it looks fun and I think the kiddies will like it.
One bad part. The kid instructed me to wear a tie. ugh. She even picked it for me.
Yes, I'll wear it.
