Here of course are pictures of the family, etc. Since they take a lot of
bandwidth, I put them on a separate page.
Over the years we've been part of a number of schools.
Wood-Gormley Elementary is the public school in our neighborhood where the kids went.
The weekly science hour and the
beam carving project are/were done there, and I (used to) maintain the
school's web pages.
ATC, the Academy for Technology and the Classics was a public charter school,
started in 2001, serving grades 7-12. We worked very hard on that school, and among other things,
I did their web pages until September 2002.
In 2001 and 2002 we had a team in the
Destination Imagination State competition.
Santa Fe High, our last school.

During the 1996-97 school year, I spent an hour every week in Linda Waidler's 3rd-4th grade
class at Wood-Gormley Public Elementary (chosen because my daughter was in this class),
answering any science question the children might have. For the 97-98 year, I did the same in
Shirley Esquibel's 3rd-grade class (by coincidence, my son was in that class). The next year, I
did the science hour in Ms. Irving's 6th-grade class, and last year I did the same in mr. Waechter's
5th-6th grade class. In 2000 mr. Waechter asked me to teach the kids html,
so I did that for a year.
Here I have some pages with the questions that came up, and elaborate on a few of the demonstrations
I came up with to explain some of the concepts. I am a scientist, not a teacher, and I do not have
a lot of equipment (and neither does the school). The demonstrations therefore use simple materials
I find in my kitchen, shop and yard. This is cardboard-and-duct tape science.

Or to be more precise, water rockets. This is serious fun, and cheap besides.
Check out the water rocket pages.
The Don Diego Neighborhood Association in Santa Fe is relatively active, and
I try to keep a record of some of the
projects we're involved in.
I've been involved in traffic issues in Santa Fe for a while now. In particular,
I worked on the Traffic Calming program.

My old hometown of Muiden is celebrating its 1050th birthday. On
this site you can see
pictures of some of the festivities.
