'Strega Nona' Author Tomie dePaola Is Dead at Age 85

I LOVED Tomie dePaola's stories as a child, his illustrations left an impression on me as a young emotional and creative being. I have a wonderful mother who made the library accessible and read to me and my siblings often. I struggled with reading, so the illustrations and connection to a story were so important in keeping me engaged in books early on. Thank you, Mr. dePaola, for Strega Nona and Clown of God and for being one of the sparks in my professional career as a visual communicator.

Inquiry Science Education Consortium (ISEC)

My work with the LANL Foundation supporting education in Northern New Mexico, shining the spotlight on student and teacher success and innovation. THIS is what Next Generation Science Standards look like in action.

4th grade students at El Camino Real Academy in Santa Fe took inquiry learning with ISEC to a whole new level. See innovative teaching by Edmund Gorman & the 4th grade team and their kids' creativity outside the classroom, building houses that incorporate electricity!

This is what science looks like in Santa Fe! Photos are of an inquiry investigation of ice cream. Kids mixed ingredients and discussed states of matter, heat transfer and why salt is the key ingredient to lower the temperature of the ice and make the liquid cream solution freeze with just a few minutes of shaking. I have the privilege of working with an amazing group of professional educators from the Inquiry Science Education Consortium (ISEC) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Foundation!

Lots of fun at the Santa Fe Public Schools Back to School Bash! Thanks to everyone who participated in our "ISECream" investigation. And special thanks to La Lecheria for providing yummy ice cream.

Massimo and Lella Vignelli

Massimo and Lella Vignelli worked together in two ways: As the visionary, he concentrated on 2D, “I talk of feelings, possibilities, what a design COULD be.”
As the realist, she focused on 3D, “I think of feasibility, planning, what a design CAN be.”

Massimo Vignelli, a Modernist Graphic Designer, Dies at 83

Massimo Vignelli, acclaimed Modernist Graphic Designer and self-described “information architect”, dies at age 83.

“There are three investigations in design. The first is the search for structure. Its reward is discipline. The second is the search for specificity. This yields appropriateness. Finally, we search for fun, and we create ambiguity.”

nytimes.com The self-described “information architect” released a radically redesigned New York City subway map in 1972.
