This weekend is the High Schol Expo in Philadelphia, which means I’m manning the Science Leadership Academy booth all weekend long with help from two Beacon alumni who are now students at Drexel. Today, we were there from 2:00 until 8:00, talking to a few hundred parents about what we’re planning to do.

It’s exhausting and the barrage of questions that we’re not quite ready to answer yet gives me plenty of food for thought, but it’s exciting to get out there and talk to people about our plans and what we think we can be. It is events like that that remind me… powerfully… that September just isn’t very far away.
