Ballet class is all about hard work, structure and making things perfect. There are lots of friends but it is strict focus during class. When I get on stage it is totally different- I feel free; it is exciting and it doesn’t feel like hard work anymore. It just kind of happens, I don’t think about anything….. I just enjoy the dance.
So you are probably wondering what’s up with a ballerina on the moon.
Well you see, my practical parents pointed out that no one can do ballet forever, so I needed a plan B. I decided I will dance as long as I can and then become a Dr. to help the ballerinas with their sore knees and feet. To do this I need science. So I guess I needed to put some S T E M on my B (ballet). Any way I signed up for a science fair and I used the focus and discipline from ballet with my project. In the end I got some really cool prizes such as first place in my category and grade, and Fast Learning Youth award (with cash) and Washigton State Science Student of the Year. I learned that science is kinda cool, and that I can do anything if I try. I think I will always love dance best, but I’m glad to explore science now.
So what about the moon? Moonbots has been fun because I got to use my love of art in the video project and I got to learn lots of cool things about space and science. In phase two I look forward doing the service project and sharing how much fun science can be with other kids who might not know much about science yet.
See you on the moon!
