The kids were eager to present at HLSA's Passion Fair this year. It's like a science fair, except kids can present anything they want - science experiments, beloved collections, favorite hobbies, whatever!
Summer chose to present her rock collection while Aidan wanted to share his work on Minecraft animations. To prepare, Summer organized and labeled her rocks (performing some experiments/tests to discern the identity of a few unknowns), while dad helped Aidan put his animations in a loop on the laptop to show and I printed out some images he designed.
It was a great experience for them to talk with other kids and adults about their interests, answering questions and explaining. We also enjoyed going around to the various other tables and exploring the interests and passions of other kids.
