A little Austin history from John T. Davis.
“How The 1970s Defined Austin”
A cool article about Austin.

Published: August 30, 2018 Austin Monthly
Longtime Austinites are particularly fond of their former sleepy college town’s history, and no decade represents a happier time—the happiest, some would say—than the freewheeling, youth-driven ’70s. Austin has always been a progressive city, but this decade formed the bedrock for where we are today. We explain why.

This past February I had the opportunity to volunteer for the first
time at the Austin Energy Regional Science Festival. I worked the
floor and in the process met a number of students and was able to check out the displays. From the simple to the complex, a cool display of creativity, hard work and intelligence!
I remember two young ladies in particular, both Junior Level/middle school.
One had her project board of documentation of objectives, and results a nd a display of plants. Her project was to grow plants upside down withvarious nutrients and water. Fairly simple project but her goal was to use this as her first step to testing in zero gravity……desiring to become an astronaut!
The second was just a project board of documentation of objectives and results. Objective was to develop better algorithms for checksums.
Hmmmm, I understand the basics but definitely above my pay grade!
What a great bunch of kids and I definitely got out of the Festival as
much as they did.
You can view the 2018 video at http://www.sciencefest.org (click through the banners on the home page) and this fall, if interested, you can get information on general volunteering and judging by contacting Ingrid Weigand at email@example.com.
Stay posted for future information for the Austin Energy Regional Science Festival February 20-23, 2019.
