Commuter Chompie Jr.

Fellow Metro Commuter, Chompie Jr.

Everyone knows Shark Week is the most wonderful week of the year, and this year, the party is getting started on Discovery Channel on Sunday, July 5th at 8PM ET/PT. However, if you are in the Washington, D.C. area, you might know that Chompie Jr. looks to kick off the party even sooner!

As he does every year, Chompie Jr. will be spreading Shark Week cheer around town, visiting local tourist spots and unsuspecting offices throughout the area. If you’re counting down to Shark Week just like we are and you would like a fin-tastic visit from our toothy friend Chompie Jr. at your place of employment, post to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ChompieAttack, tell us where you work and tag @DiscoveryComm. Chompie Jr. will be picking some offices to visit during the week of June 29th, so make sure your co-workers can handle all the jawesome fun!

Happy (almost) Shark Week!

While we focused quite a bit on our 30th birthday this past Wednesday (have you checked out the interactive timeline of our company’s history yet?), there were lots of other news items to be buzzing about. Here are some stories you may have missed:

Happy Friday! Discovery Education had a busy week, hosting on Thursday, April 23 both a live My Brother’s Keeper panel discussion, and a virtual field trip with Nutrients for Life celebrating the role STEM plays in agriculture.

My Brother’s Keeper is a national initiative aimed at improving the life outcomes of boys and young men of color; the live panel featured local and national leaders discussing the important efforts being taken thus far. The virtual field trip with Nutrients for Life engaged middle school students in STEM topics through a real-world look at the innovative technologies and scientific practices used during the planting and harvest seasons.

Happy Friday! Here in Silver Spring, we’re still feeling all warm and fuzzy inside thanks to a celebratory Puppy Bowl Tailgate we had this afternoon. If we weren’t all ready to head full throttle into the Big Game (I’m talking about the pups, here!), we certainly are now.
