OK, I was gonna put up a title in Spanish but I don't want to include all the accent marks. The point is, Lourdes Cahuich, an astronomy enthusiast and educator in Mexico, spent quite a bit of effort translating into Spanish all those videos I made answering questions from sixth graders. Amazing! Here they are: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, part 4, Part 5, Part 6, and Part 7. I assume she did a great job, since my Spanish is limited pretty much to asking where the bathroom is and for a cold bottle of water. But Lourdes is very upbeat and dedicated, so I'm pretty sure she did well. I've chatted with her a few times via Facebook and she is pretty cool, so let me publicly thank her for doing this. If you are a science teacher who has a large class of Spanish-speaking kids, well, there you go. Enjoy!
