The first class took place at the Holyoke Children’s Museum, where we have been cordially invited to meet. Susan Kelley, the museum director , has been kind enough to open the door for our project to meet at the museum, and we are most grateful. The museum is a fabulous place for kids, and we are thrilled to be part of their extended community.
The students and faculty advisors all introduced themselves, describing their interests and background information. I tried to describe my own background and the impetus to get this project up and running. Though this is a small group of students, I am thrilled and impressed with the level of interest and energy expressed today.
