I’m Attending the Launchpad Astronomy Workshop in July!

Now that Mike Brotherton has made the official public announcement, I am so excited to announce that I’ve been selected as one of the attendees for the Launchpad Astronomy Workshop at the University of Wyoming, Laramie. The workshop runs from July 14-21, which makes July a busy month for me. But I’m excited about it nevertheless. I’ve been interested in astronomy ever since I found The Nine Planets in my school library back when I was in kindergarten in Somerset, New Jersey. It is an interest that has never wavered.

It looks like an amazingly talented and diverse class this year. You can see the full list of attendees on Mike’s announcement post.
