Khan Academy is one of the best educational resources on the internet. Khan Academy offers tutorials in a wide range of courses from art history, to mathematics, to test prep. Khan Academy also has a partnership with other educational enterprises, like the British Museum.
The website allows you to use the videos that have been made to learn about these subjects. There are also teacher resources available. There is also a parent account you can make to sign up your child and to monitor their progress. The teacher account allows you to set up your own courses, too.
In June, Kim, Richard, and I all went to an open house event at MiSWACO. We were there to inform other Schlumberger employees about what SEED is and what SEED does.
We talked to several different people from all over the world. Schlumberger is a massive company that hires people from all sorts of different countries.
It was really fun to see who already knew about us and who did not. I really enjoyed trying to get people more involved with the volunteer aspect of SEED. We gave away a lot of SEED books, brochures, and notebooks.
At the end of June, some of the SEED Team took a trip to the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum in Galveston, Texas.
It was a very interesting and eye-opening experience.
The museum was very interesting and very informative. We were shown the scientific and technological aspects of the oil and gas industry, the innovation involved in offshore drilling, and drilling in general, the lifestyle of those who live on an offshore drilling rig, and we were able to walk around a life-size model of a drilling rig.
This is a fascinating experiment that is easy to do at home.
What you need:
- An egg
- A glass
- White vinegar
- Time and patience
STEP 1. Fill your glass about halfway full with white vinegar—enough to completely cover the egg.
My family and I visited the San Diego Botanic Gardens this past weekend. The gardens are large and have an expansive collection of bamboo. Even though I have been there many times in the past, I never took note of the many varieties of bamboo they have. Each one has a unique color, girth, and stature. Some of them are even striped. Here are some pictures the show the beautiful diversity of this incredible plant.

It was not just my birthday...
There are many popular children's stories these days about witches and wizards, all of whom mix magical potions in their magical worlds. My son was inspired by these books and decided to try his own hand at potion making this weekend. He and a friend mixed everything they could get their hands on into a few bottles -- water, chocolate syrup, an entire jar of Cholula hot sauce, mayonaise, multi-colored sugar, Parmesan cheese, and lemon juice -- and then froze their concoctions in the freezer. Here's a picture of the result. Looks yummy, doesn't it?
