Bringing Science Alive

'In a city full of venerable cultural institutions, the Great Lakes Science Center has been among the most ambitious. Two years ago, the center installed a giant wind turbine, the first on the American shores of Lake Erie, in its front yard. “It gives us a chance to be involved in advocacy for smart public policy, which museums don’t always get to do,” Abraham-Silver says. Last year, the center added a solar panel canopy near the front entrance. It’s now the fourth-largest solar panel installation in Ohio.'
--from my newly published mini-profile of GLSC CEO Linda Abraham-Silver, in the current issue of Continental Airlines magazine.

Don't forget the doctorate either, nor the fact that she's accomplished all this before turning 40. She even has a husband who's a stay at home dad. But she doesn't have a nursing degree nor, I would assume, your facility with the written word. So just remember that we all have our special talents, Michelle.
