About Me (L. Paul Verhage)

I'm a former United States Air Force officer, college network administrator, and high school science and electronics teacher. These days I'm working on a PhD dissertation in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Kansas. On the side, I design and build robotic and science projects and then write extensively about them and my findings. I also teach an astronomy class to the public and lead robotics workshops.

You can follow me on my blog and with my tweets @nearsys.

I'm researching (in my spare time) for a novel. Staying as true to H.G. Wells as possible, the story is a sequel to The War of the Worlds and takes place in circa 1905. Tentively, the story is called Mars 1905

Here's a current list of my publications.
