One of the great thing of using social platforms as Facebook, Twitter, and Google + is that you can connect with individuals that might have the same interests as you.
As I shared pictures of Ignacio Peña’s El Gran Debate del Planeta Tierra and commented on the great time and experience my Facebook Friend Wanda Tirado contacted me that her daughter had been in the same event.
Wanda Tirado mentioned that her kid could not stop talking about her experience of being present at what I call Ignacio’s Science School of Rock.
I took the liberty to ask Wanda if her daughter Andrea could answer a few questions on the experience. Wanda and her daughter Andrea quickly agreed and the next day I did my first interview with Wanda as my correspondent.
Here are some of the replies of what 9th grade student Andrea Nicole Berrios Tirado from the school Ernesto Ramos Antonini Escuela Libre De Musica experienced.
Interview – Andrea Nicole
Interview done by Raúl [RC] via Facebook with the help and permission of Andrea’s [ANB] mom Wanda Tirado.
[RC] Had you ever listened to Ignacio Peña before going to the Event?
[ANB] No, I had never listened to Ignacio Peña before.
[RC] What music do you usually listen too?
[ANB] I normally listen to Rap, Hip Hop, Pop, and Techno.
[RC] What part of the event did you like the most?
[ANB] I liked when the first song started and when I was reading the visuals that where coming out of the three screens during the concert.
[RC] Was there a scientist that captured your attention during the visual presentation?
[ANB] I was very interested by a scientist in a wheelchair that spoke via a computer…I don’t know his name. (Stephen Hawking)
[RC] Was there a scientific fact that you found interesting?
[ANB] How the world would end if we continue to contaminate it and also what happens in the atmosphere. That impacted me greatly.
I really enjoyed the fact that Andrea Nicole and I, although of very different ages, where actually seeing things from the same perspective. Another pat on the back to Ignacio’s team because it is always difficult to create the same impressions on different people; even more difficult when they are from different age groups.
We experienced how Ignacio was immersing kids into his style of music while captivating them with great information and knowledge of what is happening with our mother earth.
I am glad that Facebook gave me the opportunity to see “El Gran Debate del Planeta Tierra” from the lens of a 9th grade student.
Thanks Andrea and Wanda
Special thanks to Wanda for being a Super mom and super daughter Andrea for rising to the occasion so I could get her perspective.
How are your Kids learning? Are they immersed in Science?
What types of Music are they listening too?
I think taking your children to an event like Ignacio’s is a unique experience where they will learn and never forget.
