Hello Everyone,

Here is an inspiring story of two young people interested in the science
of studying light pollution.

From New Brunswick, Canada: Grade 8 students Holly Ayles and Emily Baxter
are national winners in the recent International Statistical Literacy
Poster Competition. And, their poster will go to international level in
Dublin Ireland later in August.

You can see their CBC TV interview here at the 8:05 mark:
