We have often heard it said that if you have a problem that baffles adults, ask some children to solve it. Concord Hill School students did just that. This group of second graders from Chevy Chase, MD entered and won Siemens We Can Change the World Challenge, solving their school’s “environmental problem.” This small group of 13 second graders figured out that about 60 cars were burning gasoline at about six gallons per hour while waiting in the carpool lane. Not only did they more

Let your brain chime in and think of a new angle, a new approach or a new way to commit to what you want to achieve. David R. Hawkins explains beautifully in his book Power vs. Force that these two concepts, when understood will make all the difference in how to step toward your desired result. Don’t believe me? Check out this YouTube Video of how the Driscoll Middle School Football Team used this premise masterfully. more

When the miners in Chile were lifted to freedom, the world got a powerful depiction on TV of just how intricate the rescue mission was. We saw how deep the drill had to plow through the earth to find and rescue the men held captive in the cavern below. We saw how precious any form of communication was to these men and their families above too.
2009 International Science Fair winner Alexander Kendrick is a teen who has developed a device that allows someone to send a transmit from deep underground where cell phone signals are shut out. If you have entered a parking garage to find your call was lost right after taking your automated ticket, you know how that feels. But imagine that you are caving deep underground, injured or lost and had no way to let anyone above know that you needed help.
Not only will Alex’s new texting device help cavers in distress, but it will also help preserve the sensitive eco-systems of caves too by allowing researchers who investigate life in caves to send data without having to actually be in the cave they are investigating.
Alex is just beginning his fabulous work and you will hear his name for sure in the future in the fields of Science and Engineering.
All the best!

I love a good viral video. Greyson’s voice quality is terrific and he clearly is destined for some pretty cool things. He is already booked for an appearance on Ellen. Does it get much better? Oh yes, sure, if she leans over into Simon Cowell’s ear on the set of American Idol. The it is straight to the top. more

These students were given an assignment in a class to come up with a way to discover if a patient was anemic without using a test that required electricity. So, like kids at a craft table in an elementary art class, the students got busy with a glue gun, plastic containers and lids to turn a salad spinner into a hand-spun centrifuge. more

Kathy Hawk is a humble and proud Marine Mom. Her son Justin pictured here at age 6 and as a new Marine in his dress blues shows that his dream of service began at a young age. He has become quite a young man and I celebrate this his gift of service alongside Kathy. Few writers can capture the essence of a child like a parent can, so I will not make the attempt in this case. Here is the latest in the What’s Right With Kids Today Blog in the words of Justin’s Mom.
My son is Justin Hawk, and I think he is an incredible person. I could fill pages with all the special things this child has done throughout his young life, from showing unconditional love, to sheer acts of kindness for others, but it’s this current stage in his life I want to acknowledge. You see my son entered the Marine Corp at the tender age of 17 (right out of high school) after 4 years of ROTC. He’s now 19 and has been in for almost two years. I think it is an incredibly unselfish thing to do to “volunteer” for active service during this time in America. He was driven to serve his country, he has an unbelievable patriotic essence about him and for that I couldn’t be more proud. I can’t say I’m not scared or have my “days” of worry, but I really couldn’t think of anything different my son could have done. I’ve seen this within him since he was a small child, and wasn’t surprised by his pursuit of serving this great country of ours and through my son; I’ve become more patriotic and protective in my own right of the good ol’ US of A. He’s brought my family, my friends and even my employer closer together in support of him and his service.
He’s very modest about his commitment, and becomes shy at being thanked for his service, which makes it all the more special. No matter what the views are on politics and the war(s) we are involved in, no matter what is supported or opposed, our kids, my kid, are volunteering themselves to serve this country and answer the call to duty, with honor, pride, and loyalty to all of us. How can I be anything but proud for the young man that he has become?
A Very Humble Marine Mom
*Today I am taking a moment to thank Justin, his fellow Marines and all the service men and women all around the globe. Great is your sacrifice and Great is our appreciation. Bless you all!
All the best!
