Growing up in California where much of our country's produce is grown, I was no stranger to fresh fruits, healthy vegetables, and organic produce. My grandparents lived in Palm Springs, which is an inland oasis between San Diego and Los Angeles. They would visit us a few times every year, stopping along the way at local farms and small organic produce shops to pick up some delicacies for us. My grandma would get especially excited over the eggs. She would bring us a flat of eggs (which carried 36 eggs on it), and each of them would be the size of a small fist.
Water is our most precious resource. Our lives depend on having clean water to drink, and enough water to grow our food. This is why the United Nations declared March 22nd as World Water Day, and why SEED has created so many activities that revolve around water and its quality. Let us be reminded on this day and always how precious that resource is to all of us.
SEED volunteers took the polls earlier this month. They cast their ballots for their favorite of three themes for this year's artwork competition.
- 2014: Year of the Teacher. A teacher’s inspiration can last a lifetime. How has your teacher influenced the choices you have made? Show us the impact that your teacher has had on you and the world around you.
- Math is Beautiful. There is more to math than just numbers. Patterns, shapes, and colors can lead to music, poetry, and art. In what ways can we see math’s inspiration in nature, in the Earth, and in our lives? Show us how math can be beautiful.
- The Earth’s Place in Space. The Earth is just one of an infinite number of planets, stars, comets, and other objects in the universe. What beauty lies beyond our atmosphere? What makes Earth unique in the universe?
The race was close, with the winning theme being just 15 votes away from the two runners up, which tied for second place.
And the winning theme for this year's artwork competition is...
Math is more than equations and calculations. Patterns, shapes, and colors can transform a set of numbers into music, poetry, and art. Math’s beauty is everywhere.
Many of us spent hours, days, weeks, and even months studying for those math exams in high school and college. But was it really necessary? Do we use algebra, geometry, and calculus in our daily lives? Tell us how you use math in your career or your home life.
Is there someone or something that inspired you to love math? Tell us all about it in this forum!

Hot water bottles haven't been around much lately. People have heating in their homes, electric blankets, electric mattress pads, and regular old blankets to keep them warm at night. Not to mention the fact that I live in San Diego, which doesn't get very cold in comparison with the rest of the world. So why use something old fashioned like this?
