Why Pamela keeps pushing on in the face of budget cuts and challenges for women in stem. I can't presume to know, I do know if I was a philanthropist I would be backing her and fraser heavily and even with my own personal budgets I wish I could donate more than a few hundred bucks per year that i happily do. Perhaps my gratitude for the inspiration they provide will suffice accompanied with the knowledge there efforts inspire me to teach my own children more stem at home (see the picture attached of my five year old daughter, Serren learning the states of matter.) Serren has some speech development delays but she knows carbon dioxide sublimates, helium is why a balloon is buoyant in the atmosphere and can name all the planets and pick Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn from the stars. Pamela and fraser now that your reach of online education motivated me to take my scope to Serrens special school last week and show the kids the moon before it set. Some had never seen a telescope and were amazed to see it had holes!
Respect and appreciation .
