Pen Guy Visits Mark West Elementary

Last Tuesday I gave a talk about the Mercedes Pens at Mark West Elementary School here in Santa Rosa California, for Earth Day. After the classroom visit the kids came out to see the car and ask more questions about it. I was only scheduled to visit one class but while I was there, word spread and I ended up showing the car to three more classes. That was a blast, and luckily the weather held out and did not rain during my visit.

The first grade teacher who invited me over, had this to say about it.

“Costas!!We loooooooooooved it!!  Your presentation was fantastic!  Nancy could not stop talking about how engaging, funny, and personable you are.  We can’t decide who liked the experience more – the kids or us!  Thanks so much for coming out and sharing your time, yourself, and your amazing project with us.  We all loved it!

I want you to come to my class EVERY year for Earth Day 🙂

You’re the best!! Thanks so much.”
