ACCHaoS – Fall 2013 in Retrospect

We’ve been busy.  I mean, really busy – and this is a very, very good thing!  I was catching up on some record-keeping this morning.  So far this semester (Fall 2013), ACCHaoS has made five school visits to four schools, and attended three public events – two Star Parties, and a Back to School Night that Paul did all by himself!  This translates into about forty-three hours of direct contact, and sharing science with a little over 1, 300 kids and adults.  We’re not done yet – we still have one more school visit before Winter Break.  The fun won’t stop there – we have  full calendar for Spring 2014!  Let the wild science rumpus begin!

Take a look at these photos – you can see why it has been a blast!

Star Party – November 8, 2013

Wow – haven’t posted in a while.  We’ve been busy this semester!

We had a great turnout at last Friday’s Star Party!  Lots of kids and their parents, lots of sharing science going on!  Here are a few really great photos – many thanks to the intrepid Karl Trappe for taking these photos.  If you’d like to see more, check out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ACCHaoS

Star Party Flyers are Winging It to the Campuses!

I got the Star Party Flyers back from Duplication Services today, and mailed them out for distribution to the campuses.  Since most of the graphics I design are for the web,  it’s always exciting to see how a finished product looks as a hard copy.  Well…most of the time it’s exciting!

If you’re on campus next week, and you spot one of of the flyers, would you let me know?  I’m trying to determine the effectiveness of this method of advertising the event.
