Hey, folks! I'm going to be heading to the Mideast for a STEM and peace education mission tomorrow, but I wanted to fill you in on where we are with the Passion Projects.

I'll also be sending updates about my trip when I'm away. Passion Project Conferences resume on 11/30.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
