Science and Tech Opportunities for Teens and Tweens

Science and Technology Opportunities For #Kids #MLTVkids #STEMMy 11 year-old daughter is a self described “Geek”. I discouraged her, worrying that the word carries far too much negative connotation. But as usual she is schooling me, embracing the word in her own way, pushing the boundaries of its’ outdated definition. Jaedyn is a young black female focused on science, history and the technology that opens a bigger window to both.  [Read more…]

But sometimes to get the best gift you have to give it to yourself. That’s why I have been researching the cheapest wireless plans for the last several weeks.

But the wait has been worth it as many of the carriers have simplified their websites this holiday season. [Read more…]
