My son Kristoph has been selected to participate in a Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational program in Chicago this summer. It is a great opportunity for him to learn and develop leadership and also possibly see Oprah eating.

While this is not a request for a great deal of money, at this time, it is a great deal of money for Kristoph's mother and I to pull together to support him.  I mean, yes, we could quickly rob a bank and theoretically get away with said robbery, etc., but the point is that doesn't set the right example.  

Kristoph, however, sets the right example: for example, he won a 'Do The Right Thing' award in 2012 for standing up to a bully (story here).  Also around that time, he showed an early interest in science by combining all possible flavors of Gatorade to see the differences in color and taste.  Since then, his grades and interests in topics of STEM ("topics of STEM" I said? Yes, I said that) have demonstrated great potential.  So if you are a parent, you know what that means: things start to cost money.

The program Kristoph will be participating in is an engaging residential program that will help him take his team-building and leadership skills to the next level.

"NYLF PATHWAYS TO STEM was created to identify young students with academic and leadership potential--outstanding individuals representing a variety of backgrounds and possessing a broad range of interests and goals and to stimulate and invigorate their natural curiosity to learn and discover.  The program seeks the most mature and independent students possible within this young age group, and nominations are extended to students who have demonstrated these abilities.  Educational advisors are asked to nominate those who can meet the challenge of our acadeic cirricululm and who merit the distinction of a nomination."
