I’ve done a lot of super nerdy things in my life. Like, a lot.
But I think Graphing Camp takes the top tier.
I attended Graphing Camp for, I believe, a week in 7th grade. I and two other boys were the only “campers”. I’m pretty sure at least one of those boys was doing it as an alternative to after-school detention.
And what does one do at Graphing Camp?
We ran varying distances, measured our pulse, the graphed it. I seem to also remember something about seeing how much water could be soaked up by different sized sponges.
At one point, a reporter from the local news was doing a story about different after school activities and I ended up being interviewed. I happened to mention the day and time so they used me as a soundbite for a couple of days.
Riveting stuff, right? In truth though, I loved it.
