Photo #7. Max Leslie ditching. Because LCDR Leslie’s SDB was out of fuel the aircraft floated. Leslie and his gunner walked out to the end of the wing and stepped into the whaleboat sent to rescue them. THEY DIDN’T EVEN GET THEIR FEET WET.
Celebrating Science – A Family Science Project
“to develop a basic level of scientific literacy. Whether addressing a mundane or momentous issue, a solid foundation in the sciences is critical for every individual’s success and the advancement as a society.
Parents and caregivers can be instrumental in supporting children’s engagement with science. A companion resource to Celebrating Science: A guide for expanding inquiry-based science education into the community, this suite of materials is meant to support elementary-aged students in bridging three areas of science: science at school, at home, and at work. “

Talkin’ ‘Bout Bessie «
“Elizabeth “Bessie” Coleman was always being told what she could and couldn’t do. In an era when Jim Crow laws and segregation were a way of life, it was not easy to survive. Bessie didn’t let that stop her. Although she was only 11 when the Wright Brothers took their historic flight, she vowed to become the first African-American female pilot. Her sturdy faith and determination helped her overcome obstacles of poverty, racism, and gender discrimination.”

The Grahame-White Factory at Hendon is a virtual shrine to early aviation. Even setting aside the prominent rôle its founder, Claude Grahame-White, had in the establishment of aviation in the U.K., and the significance of the early factory buildings themselves (Grade II* Listed), the Royal Air Force Museum, London, has chosen to display some superb early aircraft (plus some replicas) in this wonderful setting.
