>Well, I did it. It’s over. The event was a success, Jack had a great time, and Chris was totally amazing at the DNA station. Kids and their parents were really “wowed” by the fact that you could see the DNA so easily. One mom even thought it was something else to simulate DNA and he had to explain that it was the real deal.
We had close to 275 kids, and their parents. We actually had volunteers show up that we didn’t even know we were going to have, which was nice, but got a little confusing. All the students who were helping were so nice. I hope Jack does stuff like that when he’s older. I may have to guilt him into it.
Jack’s principal even told me it was the best year they’ve had. He got to make Silly Putty, Pinecone Birdfeeder, and a structure out of mini marshmallows and toothpics.
I will definitely do this again next year. But there’s a slim chance I’ll be volunteer coordinator. Maybe two years from now, but not next year.
