I’m pleased to report that my daughter Sophie, aka Kid1, came in second place in the 53rd annual Hawaii Science and Engineering Fair, which was held at the Hawaii Convention Center earlier this week.
Her project was called 50 Million Years Ahead, and expanded on the Pangea Theory, plate tectonics and earthquakes. My theory is the recent seismic shifting on the globe gave the girls’ project relevance. Timing is everything.
Not only did Sophie come in second place in the junior display division (6th graders), she and her partner Julia won best Earth & Science project, and best Group project.
Yay, Sophie! Here’s a photo.
As some of you might recall, when she won her division at Kapiolani Community College on February 6th, I jumped for joy and popped my Achille’s tendon. I’m still crutching about on that injury. You can bet I didn’t jump for joy this time!
My daughters bless me so much. I hope they do great things for our world, in due time.
Hurray for Sophie. And hurray for Lavagal because you recognize the blessing of children! You always inspire me!
Thanks to the organizers and sponsors of the 53rd Hawai’i State Science & Engineering Fair. The encouragement and inspiration the program offers budding scientists is invaluable. To Sophie and her partner, Julia, and all the other participants, hooray! Nerds run the world.
Congratulations to her – and her noticeably proud parents.
