Citizen Scientists

I never thought I would be saying this about my youngest but the other day he was creating a small Scientist Kit to play with so for him I have this great article entitled “Citizen Scientists” by Amy Dockser Marcus at the Wall Street Journal. This is for all those scientist creating their own Scientist Kit.

Mixing it up!

Our home

My kids have always enjoyed looking at the other planets as we gaze out into the sky but this article over at the New York Times entitled “The Enigma 1,800 Miles Below Us” by Natalie Angier at the New York Times was a great read about our own home, planet Earth.

Night Time!

On my way

On my way to work this morning I came across a mother robin sitting in her nest (up in the roof of the Metrolink stop where I catch a ride) and watched a rabbit skipping across the tracks, so this article seemed very appropriate. It’s entitled “Ball(park) Hawks” by Susan Weich in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this morning.

Nature is everywhere if you look hard enough.
