NASA Workshop during the Doodle4Google in 2014

One of the judges during the annual Doodle4Google contest in 2014 was an astronaut.  Rylie was  so excited that she got her  Doodle4Google book signed by him and she also got a picture with him during the  meet and greet.  He was a very nice and friendly man.    I remember my son was really quiet when he was telling us  things about being an astronaut.  It was my first time meeting an astronaut so it was very memorable.
EJ was very excited upon seeing the NASA workshop  sign when the activities have started.
 The NASA workshop was the last activity that they did  before the awarding ceremony have begun.
 They were provided different kinds of materials to build something,
 EJ who is very interesting  building stuff was into this.
 The wooden wheels is what attracted him the most coz you know, anything with wheels is awesome for him.
 He was trying to work with the big kids but  they kind of just ignored him so he just did his own thing.

 Although initially we were told that only the  winner and one parent can come to the  prepared activities, I am thankful that Google have accommodate even the extra family because  me and my son got to go too and he was able to participate.
 Rylie and her partner  worked so well together in every activities.
 She also love doing crafts so this was right in her alley.
 As independent as she is, t's funny to watch  that when Daddy tried to help, she said "I got it Dad", kids!
 The two of the were very happy  when they tested their creation and it run.
Doodle4Google was  a great experience for  the whole family.  We will cherish the memories we've had in California.  If yourkids are into arts, watch out for the Doodle4Google contest, they do it every year.  A $30,000 scholarship would go along way plus the school get a $50,00 education grant as well if your child win.  My kids  did not get any inspiration  for the theme last year so they did not submit any entry.

Looks like a lot of really fun stuff, and a lot of learning too. I wish our area had more things like that, as we had to travel at least an hour to a bigger city in order to experience things like this.

Thanks for sharing this outing with us.
