 Hi Calvin,
I'm loving your website. Thanks for putting it together!

Your cousin put me in touch with you; I'm working on a neat project that I'm hoping you might collaborate on.

I'm fascinated that this generation will see the colonization of Mars. I'm doing an expo that will travel to schools and burning Man festival to spread the word-and the thoughts that will make this move into space more ethical.

The Burning Man version, at will be the adult-ed version. A made-for-kids version will travel to schools around the lower mainland.

-I'm making some robotics to make it come alive but I'm not sure I can get the major project, a telepresence robot to bring people to Burning Man, up in time.
- happy to include any projects you might think would be useful

Looking forward to connecting!
 Great idea! Private message sent.
