View some great talent!

You have to take a look at these sites! This week I am a judge for the NASA Means Business Student Competition and yesterday the 7 finalists presented their strategies on ways to encourage math and science in middle and high school students, as well as the general public. Along with their presentations, each team was required to develop a Public Service Announcement (PSA). Finalists were encouraged to employ the tools of advertising, marketing, communication, radio, television, film, journalism, etc. You can view some of the GREAT work these students developed on their websites. Tomorrow me and the rest of the judges will decide the grand prize winner! I'd love to hear what you think of their work! Post a comment!

Today the Citizens for Space Exploration from the Cocoa Beach Area Chamber of Commerce had the Blast Off Reception! Next week we will be traveling to Washington D.C to demonstrate our support for space and the vision for space exploration to our elected officials. We had a great reception which included a performance by Chris Kahl with his song "Rocket Boys". John Newstreet from Senator Martinez's office, Cheryl Moore of Rep. Feeny's office, and Fred Kirschstein of Rep. Weldon's office were all there to share kind supportive words to the travelers.

After the reception, I was ready to head home, do some school work...until I realized my keys were in the ignition and all my doors were locked. The first phrase that came to my head was "You gotta be kidding me!". With some great help, someone was able pop the lock with a hanger, and I was finally on my way home after a long day.

My favorites is Mars20, easily. It seemed to answer the questions I see the most on my website, www.spacebull.com. The videos were very well done, and the information on the various programs, including educational links, and "What has NASA done for me?" were all very informative and very well laid out. I'd vote for them in a heart beat!

A close second was www.whatsitgoodfor.com.
