 Recently, in the city of Abidjan in the country of Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), an immensely exciting outreach event took place. Please kindly take a look at my 14-page illustrated report on this event. It is attached as the second pdf.
The intent of this report is to inspire more of the ISWI community to make "an outreach" to young teen-agers all of the world. Many of them need your attention, your inspiration, your guidance, your concern, and your care, to make wise choices on how to proceed in Life. Show them the beauty, and the magic, of the natural sciences. When done well, their eyes light up. This time, in Abidjan, it was done very well.
