three down...five to go - Jun 26, 2006 at 10:54AM

So I've just realized that our time here is almost half-way over!  I'm familiar with the city and enjoy exploring on the weekends.  I stay very busy at AIP and things don't look like they will be slowing down any time soon...which is a good thing.  Last week I participated in my first outreach for elementary schoolers at Tuckahoe Elementary in Virginia.  T'was god experience but unlike my visits to high schools.  Tomorrow I leave with Liz for the CUP meeting in Indiana.  More on that at a later time.  

I had my first scary/crazy/unforgettable incident last night attempting to make it home on the metro.  Let's just say that it involved heels, torrents of water, a suspicious fellow who kept asking for my number, and finally (thank goodness!) a cab ride to the dorm.  I think I owe Alex...big time.  What a rush.  I was so glad to curl up in my dry bed last night.  Hopefully tonight will not be as adventurous.

Hi, Katherine,
Could you say a little more about how your visit to the elementary school to do a science lesson is different than your visit to high schools?
