Group Photo Fall 2011The 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
  • 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.
