Just came back from a visit to the Science Leadership Academy high school in center city Philadelphia. I was a guest instructor in Marcie T. Hull’s art class where I gave a demonstration of graphic recording (AKA visual notetaking).

I also got a tour from SLA Princicipal Chris Lehmann. His pride in his students and staff was as evident for his love for the same. I got to talk with an engineering teacher and a couple of science teachers as well. Everyone seemed to love being there.

On the way out I heard an engineering student from Drexel explaining how wastewater is collected, channeled and disposed of in Philadelphia to a throng of students, who then set out around the neighborhood to do primary research on drainage systems in the area.

Had a wonderful time interacting with the students and staff at Science Leadership Academy. Hope to be back soon.
