    I was unable to make the last event, but hope to pitch at the next event. We are looking for educators to spotlight on our website and to provide links and content to engage other educators. Please take a look at:

    Steven, Fu, and Katie, and all that made this happen..

    Thank you so much for this event. It was really wonderful. I met great people, incredibly smart and visionaries, enthusiastic and made great connections to help people out, and hopefully I'll find people who want to join us in our venture too. We walked out, a couple of us talking until we reached Penn station, and found we have the same passion and there is great feeling of mutual support amongst all the attendees.

    Thank you again. Also, thank you Katie for reaching out and hopefully connecting www.Dreamglobeproject.com with New Orleans's schools. We can't wait!

    Hi All, It was a great meetup and very nice meeting you all.
    As some of you may already know, I am designing a physics game and trying to understand the actual need before I finalize my design. Therefore, I have designed a very short survey for science teachers. If you take your 5 minutes and fill out the form, that would be a great help! You can find the survey at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1i8JFyiXxgWZp1uHnE_IB32F8jzEFhItTD6a1Us6X3Ns/viewform
