November 8, 2020 – National Cappuccino Day | National STEM/STEAM Day
What Puts The Steam In Your Day? If You’re A Grownup It’s Likely This Espresso Drink. But For The Kid In All Of Us Technology Really Revs Things Up!
Welcome to November 8th, 2020 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate technology and all the ways it inspires us every day!
It’s not hard to imagine that the cappuccino we enjoy virtually everywhere today developed first in Italy. The espresso drink made with steamed milk and topped with milk froth first appeared in Italian coffee houses in the early 1900s. What may surprise you is that before then they were called kapuziner after the Capuchin monks who wore beige hooded robes that resemble the drink. The Viennese kapuziner was made with whipped cream and cinnamon or chocolate shavings and appeared as early as the 1700s. I owe a personal debt of gratitude to whoever decided to mix coffee with cream and on National Cappuccino Day I’m celebrating the genius who made it possible to make them in my own kitchen!
Science and technology are critical to our future. That’s why STEM and STEAM education have become increasingly popular. For those of you who don’t know the terms, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The A was added to incorporate Art for a more well rounded curriculum. Young children are curious by nature, so introducing them to science and technology early in life can make a huge difference in their development. Even if your child doesn’t focus on a career in any of these fields, STEM and STEAM education can set them on a path towards success. On National STEM/STEAM Day, take time to inspire the little people in your life because they are the ones who will shape our future.
