Hi.

Sorry about this stupid nav tray -- I hate it, but maybe you love it and then I'm sorry I said I'm sorry.

Anyway. Here's a collection of work and projects from science writing to poetry.

This lesson was full of all kinds of challenges. Jumping machines of all kinds at Saturday science.

Inspired by the leaproach, we set out on a mission of bio-inspired design. How to make a machine that jumps with legs?

So we knew the leaproach has spring-loaded knees. We looked at a potential model based simply on cardstock, as shown onscreen. Then things got more creative, with other types of legs introduced. Competition!
