Hello Everyone!

We would like to thank the Saluda Trail Middle School's 8th grade science students and their teacher Mr. Davis from Rock Hill SC.
Today the CP website (webcam & chat room) were used as part of their in classroom ciriculum for earth sciences. Education! YAAAAHOOOO! happy.gif
Mrs CP and myself demonstrated some basic lapidary techniques on the webcam while the classroom had 6 stations set up for live chat interactivity.
The results were absolutely amazing! biggrin.gif
Everyone had a great time and the results of todays lessons (the finished cabs) are to be wire wrapped in silver and sent to winners in each class!

Two thumbs up too all the students and their very cool teacher Mr. Davis! cool.gif
We hope to have future science labs with you all again! What a great day! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Here is a pic of todays cabs..........Wow! very nice work Mrs.Cp!

Thanks Mr. Davis and all the kids.
It was a day I will never forget. happy.gif
Im going to work the back sides of the cabochons for the kids today before having them wrapped, that way they look nice from both sides.

Im looking forward to the next time. wink.gif

I wish I could have hung in there longer, but being at work with a finicky firewall prevented it.

Dan & Denise - this is awesome! Hopefully when my grand kids are a bit older their school has the foresite to make these kinds of activities available to them. But if it doesn't I'll take advantage of you anyway!

Nice to meet everyone!

fanatic.......... We would love that! You are always welcome to join in chat
and view the webcam when we are working stones. With it being winter and hard to get out to dig, working stones has been a fun way to pass time.
Check the webcam often. biggrin.gif
