This week the ten year old got to participate in STARBASE camp, at the National Guard Armory in Cheyenne.
They had four classes each day, all based on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). In one of the classes they designed these dog tags, which were printed on their 3D printer. Every day they did some computer drafting or design, or programming. Then they had fun hands on activities doing things like designing a way to land an egg on the moon without it cracking, building rockets and shooting them off, studying gravity and tornado tubes, and a fun marshmallow experiment to measure air pressure. There were a lot of other activities too, but too many to list. I'll get pictures later and post more about them then.
The ten year old let the five year old wear his lanyard and dog tag.
South of Cheyenne there is a buffalo ranch. They have camels too, but my picture was really blurry.
The ten year old thought this cloud looked like a marshmallow. I think it was more like a cotton ball.
