We're so proud of Benjamin who was chosen by his science teacher to be one of the students from their school's 8th grade to be a part of a two day program sponsored by UNC's Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. Their Destiny Bus is a 44' portable laboratory in which students will spend two days participating in various science experiments. Benjamin is thrilled that he gets to do this. As anyone who's read this blog knows, our boy loves himself some science! How many other kids ask for a Bunsen burner, test tubes, a microscope, and a centrifuge for their birthday or Christmas? Or sleeps under a poster of the Elements (and can sing the lyrics to Tom Lehrer's song about them) and another of Great Scientists? As his parents we are not only proud of our son, but excited that he gets to take part in such an exciting opportunity.
Way to go, Benjamin! Nobel Peace Prize, here he comes! (No pressure).
