So, even though the first Donor's Choose project went through and was funded, I swore to myself that I was not going to do one again for a while because I really felt like I was driving people insane with my posting about it on social media. Well... It seems that didn't last long because here I go again. This time instead of new technology (which everyone knows that I love) I am looking for books that I can use to expose my students to interesting careers in STEM related fields. I want to send these books home with them so that they can not only learn about them but teach their parents as well. I was really excited while researching exactly which books I wanted to find that one of them is about Jane McGonigal who I had the privilege to hear speak just last week at a technology conference. Such a small and fascinating world!
