Celebrating our final Fall 2011 session
The Edison Light Bulb has its final meeting of the fall session tomorrow, Wednesday, Nov 30, 1:15-2:45 pm. We plan to celebrate all our eight students have accomplished in eight short sessions:
- Establishing a new blog at edisonlightbulb.edublogs.org
- Creating and distributing business cards to promote the blog
- Writing 29 unique stories, news items, reviews, puzzles and more
- Receiving nearly 500 unique visitors from half our states and nearly 20 countries on five continents
- Exchanging over 100 comments about our work
- Creating an 8-page print edition for the Edison community
…oh, and I lost track of the number of push-ups and field laps to burn off the extra energy – where does it come from?
A special thanks to Ellen W. for helping out every week, to those who’ve provided snacks, and to Joe, Rose, & Stacy for their support and making Edison a welcoming place for programs like ours.
And to our first foreign correspondent Tor – we’re sorry you’ll miss the party, but perhaps you can get your parents to take you out for a croissant at a lovely streetside bakery in Bordeaux! (And maybe write a pastry review!)
Thanks again for the privilege of working with these kids.
