Day 10: Math Test, Magic, and Dancing

Today's title pretty much sums up our entire day! In the afternoon, we had a small math quiz, which apparently I did ok on (: So I was happy about that, because it brought my grade up a bit. After the Math Test, we watch David Sutton do magic tricks. While teaching us magic tricks, he taught us about sustainability, the subject he taught as a professor at Stanford. It was really interesting talking to him and listening to him. He talked about his love of art and science, and how he had trouble choosing between them during his college years. The connection between eco-sustainability and urban planning really strikes me as interesting, and I'm really considering studying that if I get the chance. In the evening we did Salsa dancing! It was a lot of fun.


I, too, had an interesting

I, too, had an interesting day today.   I went to Tulsa Town Hall where I heard Alison Levine who is one  of 30 people in the world who has compleated The Adventure Grand Slam, climbing the highest peak on every continent and skiing to both Poles.  She has had  quite an interesting career!   Now she teaches at the U.S. Military Academy teaching how to be a leader in adverse conditions.  Her number one lesson in life and mountain climbing is that it is okay to feel scared or intimidated as long as you TAKE ACTION.  Hope you had fun with your family. 

Hello, I'm Madeleine. I was in the pilot Microcampus program in 2012. In Xizhou, I researched Bai Minority Clothing because of my interest in the patterns and embroidery on Bai clothing. Though a seemingly lackluster topic, I found that my project became less and less about clothing, and more about the preservation of traditions in a village that is becoming more and more exposed to the world outside of the valley. I welcome you to take a look at my project, and see how my ideas and thoughts had developed over the course of a month!
