The skinny on hard-body mom gyms and the Paul Henson Y

After living south of Interstate 435 for most of my adult life, I moved north with my family two years ago to old Leawood. And whatever contrasts you can find in the north/south divide of our county, none embodies the differences more than a place I visited as soon as we moved north: The Paul Henson YMCA on 79th Street and Mission Road.

Bringing a project to the White House Science Fair

Early April, I was walking between classes when my phone rang: I had been invited to the White House! I was going to exhibit my scientific work for the White House Science Fair. After school, I celebrated the news with my friend, Christine Yoo. I had been team leader of a research project with Christine on developing a novel, sustainable device that can simultaneously produce clean energy and remove oil spill pollution. For our work, we won the $100,000 grand prize in the Siemens Competition for Math, Science, and Technology and other accolades, and we were invited to the White House Science Fair to exhibit our efforts to represent the Siemens Foundation and Discovery. We were beyond excited!

Parents @ Play: One to grow on: Gardening with kids

Like cooking, gardening is a great family activity. Growing and caring for plants helps kids learn teamwork, builds problem-solving skills, and encourages responsibility and independence. If you're growing edible plants, gardening also gives kids (and adults) an important glimpse into where their food comes from. It's also a great way to get kids to spend time outdoors. However, you don't need acres of land to plant a garden. This week, we explore several ways to have a fulfilling family gardening experience without leaving your home at all.
