6 My Guide!

Hello, I'm Glenn. I have had a lifelong interest in science, technology, nature, math, building things, & much more. Perhaps what makes me unique is that when I dress as a mad scientist, my friends tell me it's not a costume. Hope to see you in my classes. Until then I need to work in my secret lab on my d̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶r̶a̶y̶ hamster maze.
