March 22. Day 81. Blue sky thinking

Max Bishop has a question for Dr Karl
Why is the sky blue?
Why is the sun bright?
What makes the moon round? Do you believe in UFOs and Aliens?
Question after question abut the sky. And then it hit. These kids are in hospital. If these kids see the sky at all, it is through windows.
There was a lot of blue sky thinking going on here.
And the brightest star in this blue sky today is Dr Karl.
The celebrity scientist is in Brisbane for World Science Festival taking place at South Bank.
The Lady Cilento Children's Hospital is only a few hundred metres from the festival headquarters but that's a few hundred metres too far for most of these children.
So if you cant take the kids to the festival, you take the festival to the kids. The kids lapped it up, especially Max Bishop the liver transplant survivor who was chosen to interview Dr Karl. He was amazing, with the interviewing skills of a pro. if I'm honest I think all those kids and their parents are everyday heroes.
