James is saving money!!

James went to engineering camp at UTA last summer. You can read his post about it here. He spent a whole week on the UTA campus studying aerospace engineering, visiting corporations who utilize engineering, listening to engineers speak about their field, conducting different experiments, and so much more. He loved it so much that he is still excited about going back.

So...he's getting ready by saving his money. The camp is $375. I have put a thermometer to the right that will show James' progress.

For other 6th, 7th, and 8th graders...you, too, can have a thermometer. Let me know if you want to start saving your money to go!

For adults...you can help encourage their progress by pledging a match here: http://www.active.com/donate/centraldallas/engineering

This is a great opportunity. Make the most of it James!

The Thrifty One

I save for small purchases like christmas shopping and vacation souvenirs by doing free sites that pay. Some of them, you only have to be 13 years old (with parents permission, of course). I have a list of these sites at my blogs- hope this helps.Good luck!
