Wanderlust

I suffer from wanderlust, not to be confused with a travel bug; travelers tend to go in search of specific destinations whereas we wanderers are simply curious about where the road will take us. I’m not, at least not by my lights, at all reckless, but I am a calculated risk taker looking for something more than safe transport, so naturally my wandering is done on a Harley.

A Survey of Interesting Robots

Having mentored High School robotics for 16 years, Gary Koerzendorfer shares some interesting robots he’s come across. He uses these as examples and inspiration for his students.

San Francisco Regional Mensa (SFRM) is a chapter of Mensa, the international society for people who score in the top 2% on IQ tests. The goals of the group are to provide and encourage social and intellectual interaction. There are approximately 1800 members in the San Francisco Bay Area  and we regularly schedule 80+ events each month. 

Mensa is for those who rejoice in the exercise of the mind. If you enjoy mental challenges and revel in the interplay of ideas, Mensa is an organization that will stretch your mind and expand your horizons.

“My role today continues to be responding to questions families have regarding everything from understanding definitions of gifted and twice-exceptionality, finding schools suitable for gifted children, psychologists for testing, and connecting with gifted organizations.” – Melody Lowman, SFRM’s Gifted Youth Resource Coordinator

“I love the RG’s. Meeting new people with similar interests, having fun and learning about subjects I would never think to study on my own like How to Make an Oboe Reed” – Betty Hass, Editor of SFRM’s newsletter The Intelligencer

“I like going to Mensa events because I never feel like I have to downplay my accomplishments or intelligence.” – Lana Lee, SFRM member-at-large, webmaster and Gen-X coordinator

 “It’s great having such eclectic discussions with others who can not only keep up, but also broaden our horizons.” – Cynthia Wilcox, former SFRM Assistant Local Secretary
