Special Guests at the Sun Worldwide Education Conference

We had a busy week at the Sun Worldwide Education and Research Conference in San Francisco. Mr. Xu Ming, Counsellor of the China Ministry of Education joined Mr. Scott McNealy on stage to announce an OpenSPARC program for Chinese students. KTSF Channel 26 mandarin news reported on the story.

There were so many great speakers at the conference. I was really honored to meet Dr. Kathy Sullivan, the first American woman to walk in space. Kathy logged 532 hours in space and had been on three space shuttle missions. She told me that being in the shuttle is like “riding a controlled explosion.” Kathy, like Sun, is working hard to nurture young students. Kathy has a passion for igniting in others the wonder and importance of science, math and technology. She currently serves as Director for Ohio State University's Battelle Center for Mathematics and Science Education Policy.
