I took Louis to his first Science class today. Well I went and he slept and fed. He did have a look around briefly at the start of the class but I think the sight of me on roller skates and with bright red hair and a flowing cape confused him!
One of the projects i'm helping out with during my maternity leave is a Science class being taught at the High School of Global Citizenship (HSGC) in Brooklyn, New York. Sean and I have helped out with Global Kids projects before, and the timing of this is perfect for keeping me from going gaga at home!
Every day the class has Science from 8.30 - 9.15am EST (1.30 - 2.15pm GMT). Until summer they will be learning about the environment and sustainability issues etc within the virtual world of Second Life. For example they will learn about materials used in housing design by creating a house in SL.
Afterwards a few of the Global Kids people met to have a voice chat in SL. Louis and I then went to Asda, the best thing I could think of doing with the rest of the day, which helped me remember why I'd decided to help with the science class!
