A chip off the old blog!

It's a happy day around here today as we celebrate my older son Sam's 15th birthday. It's kind of hard to believe he's actually 15, but at the same time I'm very proud of the fine young man he's grown into.

And, like the title of the post says, he's become a chip off the old blog! (Thanks to my wife for the little play on words.)

Sam has actually started his very own science blog!

He's currently in grade 9 in the gifted program at Toronto's Northern Secondary School and as part of the program he takes on a two-term project where he explores a particular subject in depth. His topic is the usefulness of human exploration of space. And for the active portion of his project he's chosen to record his thoughts and impressions on his very own blog: Space Exploration and Us. And really, I had nothing to do with that decision, he made it on his very own. Interestingly, according to his prof he's the first student at the school that's used a blog for their project.

The blog has been going for a few weeks now and he's aiming for one or two posts per week. He's now up to six posts so I thought it would be a good time to introduce him to the world.

Drop by, wish him happy birthday, encourage him, leave a comment, enjoy his unique insights.
