The work of the Traveling Programs at MOS

Tomorrow we're going to be running Heartbreak Hill for the first time, which is a major hill in the Boston Marathon that comes up about 20 miles into the marathon.  We're running 8 miles for our long training run of the week, and it includes Heartbreak Hill.  As a present from my in-laws, I got a cool new running shirt that says "See you at the finish" and I'm planning to wear it to the training run tomorrow. 

We also got a team email this week about the recent work of the Traveling Programs at the Museum of Science.  Here are the things they've been working on lately:
  • The team has taught programs for over 17,000 people in the past two months
  • Currently prototyping demonstrations for their new multi-grade sound assembly Now Hear This: The Sounds of Science which will premiere in March (funded thanks to Marathon donations) 
  • Premiering a new PreK-2 engineering program in January
  • Purchase of a new van in January (funded thanks to Marathon donations)
If you want to help out with this wonderful program, please donate through my link on the Museum of Science website.  Thank you and Happy New Year!

P.S.  I should mention that I've been super hard core this week, running outside in Minnesota in the winter.  To be fair, the weather has been unseasonably warm, but still!

  1. How was Heartbreak Hill? Not too heartbreaking, I hope!
