|Mac at Barnum Day Camp, 2013,|
showing off his design project
Mac was very interested in science and ecology and once told me he wanted to be a scientist. I can remember him getting really excited the first time he met with us at Audubon and saw the solar panels and other "green" technologies (Audubon is completely off the grid.)
Here you see him showing off his design for a bridge made of marshmallows and toothpicks at the "Gizmos, Gadgets, and Goo" STEM-themed Cub Scout Day Camp in Barnum, MN in 2013. He also did a great job of designing a container for the camp egg drop that year -- it survived the fall from the top of the grandstand just fine!
Mac was a great kid and will be deeply missed by all of us.
