This coming Thursday, there will be a Cudahy public forum.
After graduating high school, one of the best things my mom did was encourage me to major in something that I really enjoyed. As long as it involved a college of some sort, she did not care what it was.
Below is information about an upcoming Cool Stuff for Kids Opportunity Fair at the Marquette University Engineering Hall. It is this Saturday.
Here is a common experience I went through in grade school, high school, college, and even now in my day-to-day events. This is a common human experience that should be a regular part of every person's life.
There is a task, such as understanding a concept (simple fractions, for example).
- A teacher teaches me the concept. I look at the concept. I think. I try. I don't quite understand.
- I walk away and, depending on the difficulty of what is being taught, I might complain, curse, tell myself that the concept is way beyond my reach.
- I try again. Again, I still don't fully understand.
- I try harder. I turn my head sideways. I close my eyes and walk away again. I may struggle and curse even louder. I come back and if necessary, I ask questions. I focus.
- I understand. Ahh, I get it.
- It feels great!
