Saturday June 4 I worked with Fuel My Brain non-profit to answer questions at the grand opening of Cascade Meadow Environmental Center in Rochester Minnesota. We had an entire room for display which were divided up into four tables; mousetrap cars, electric motors, model solar cars, and lighting comparisons. In the course of the day we had a steady stream of people come through, what was amazing to me was how interested everyone was. Many people with young children who absolutely fascinated with everything we had. One boy probably around 8 years old said he wasn't interested in science when he came in and must of spent at least an hour looking at everything.
