Family Science Day

Scientists for Tomorrow (SfT) will be hosting their annual Family Science Day event Saturday, December 6th, 2014 at the Museum of Science and Industry. We are very excited to meet all of your community members, including all of the parents and children that will be participating in this year’s activities.

There is so much planned for this year as we will participate in the viewing of “D­Day: Normandy 1944” at the Omnimax Theatre at the Museum of Science and Industry. This stunning film covers the events that unfolded during one of the most important operations throughout the second World War. We will be hosting various activities, including a Make ­and­ Take presented by SfT staff, Science Works hosted by MSI, as well as an abundance of immersive and educational courses that cover the basics of science, including an introduction to space and the human anatomy.

If you wish to participate, please inform the coordinator of the programs at your center/site, to see if they would be interested in participating. Thank you to all that have cooperated with us through the Scientists for Tomorrow program, we look forward to seeing you at the Museum of Science and Industry for a day of immersive and educational activities.

We hope to see many of you there.

The Lost Generation Poem

The Lost Generation by Jonathan Reed
I am part of a lost generation.
And I refuse to believe that
I can change the world.
I realize this may be a shock, but
“Happiness comes from within”
Is a lie, and
“Money will make me happy”
So in thirty years, I will tell my children
They are not the most important thing in my life.
My employer will know that
I have my priorities straight because
Work
Is more important than
Family
I tell you this:
Once upon a time
Families stayed together
But this will not be true in my era.
This is a quick fix society
Experts tell me
Thirty years from now, I will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of my divorce.
I do not concede that
I will live in a country of my own making.
In the future,
Environmental destruction will be the norm.
No longer can it be said that
My peers and I care about this Earth.
It will be evident that
My generation is apathetic and lethargic.
It is foolish to presume that
There is hope.
And all of this will come true unless we reverse it.
