Caused by the Sun of Man

My son's school is going to be the first school in Connecticut to go solar powered.

It is important for us to make sure that our children have a healthy appreciation for science. The best way that this can be done is for them to see that it is fun and applicable.

A few weeks ago we attended a children's festival downtown at Yale which had alot of different ethnic groups and a focus on science also. My son learned how to write his name in Arabic, did the Knowledge to the placement of countries on the Indian Sub-continent, observed some experiments with liquid nitrogen, got involved with some experiments with oil and water, viewed the night sky in a portable planetarium, and also was entranced by various ethnic dances such as the Lion Dance. It was a good outing.
