Try this EASY & AWESOME experiment to find out how much water is in snow!
1. Gather up snow in a jar.
2. Measure how much snow you have.
3. Make a prediction: How long will it take to melt and how much water will remain in the jar. Record your predictions.
4. Go do something fun and check on the jar throughout the day.
See our results along with more details in the post:
Fun indoor Winter science kids will love! ❄
Individual synurids (Synura sp). 1000x magnification. Brightfield.
Passion Puddle has been filled with beautiful golden Synura lately! We’ve found them in virtually all of our water samples that we have collected thus far.
Synurids are a type of heterokont algae of the class Synurophyceae. What you are actually looking at here are some individuals that broke off from the main colonies as the water under my slide began to dry out and create stressful conditions. Each individual is a balloon-shaped cell with its own pair of flagella that point outward and move around. When these cells get together in colonies, these flagella cause the colonies to exhibit a spinning motion that you can see throughout this series of posts. Synurids are a great example of a group of unicellular protists that have found it advantageous to live in a colony and function more like a multicellular organism than as individuals. In synurids, individual cells still divide on their own but as colonies grow to a certain volume, they also divide into multiple colonial groups. It looks like this rather long colony may be ready to divide soon. Associations like this likely resemble the kinds of associations that existed hundreds of millions of years ago when multicellularity first evolved. Multicellularity has actually evolved independently dozens of times in eukaryotic cells so it’s no wonder we find so many different types of organisms showing colonial behavior!
@keciorenkodluyor ile durmuyor, hayatımıza renk katıyoruz.
9-11 Ocak 2019 tarihlerinde @scientix_turkiye ile gerçekleştirdiğimiz STEM çalıştayı çoktan bitti.
Disiplinler arası çalışma diyorum her platformda, boşuna demiyorum.
Her branştan öğretmenle konuşmak, yeni işbirliklerini getiriyor; yeni projelere yelken açıyoruz.
Bize bu imkanı sağlayan #keçiorenkodluyor proje ekibine teşekkürler.
We’ve had some great inspiration from the Center for Childhood Creativity and we can not wait for the children of our community to benefit from all of their research. At Curio, play is at the heart of everything we do. It is everything! #letthemplay
DIY Jumping Roos 🇦🇺 P.S They need to make a kangaroo emoji 😜
With Australia Day coming up, we read, "Spot's New Friend", by Eric Hill. The story shows several Aussie animals, featuring Spots new friend - Alice the Kangaroo. 🤗
This DIY is really quick and easy to make. Swipe to see set up 👉
The best part is my 2.5 yr old could make it jump himself after having a few practice tries. Winner!! 👍 .
[ 1.21.19] // I'm doing homeschool planning today with @evernote. I type up all my curriculum and resource choices, wishlist items, goals, vision and inspiration. All of that is divided into seperate notebooks based on grade and subject. Then in June and July I create weekly and monthly calendars that incorporate items from my brainstorm sessions. Shoutout to @syreenab for giving me the inspiration to use Evernote for homeschool!
The number of exciting career possibilities in #science, #technology, #engineering and #maths are endless and the best news is, there’s a route in for everyone. Come to the #BigBangFair to discover yours! You'll be able to talk to real-life scientists and engineers throughout the day to find out about their work and experience.

Here’s a throwback to the STEAM Festival @yomo_la at the LA Convention Center back in September. Today, we are busy getting our exhibit ready for the STEAM Festival in Barcelona next month. We’ll be introducing coding concepts to thousands of school children for FREEEE. How are you spending your MLK Day??
Martin Luther King Jr. understood the importance of giving back, speaking up, and working with others for social good. Today, MetroHacks honors all that MLK did for intersectionality and making a positive impact on the world. Thank you, Dr. King!
Good Morning, I’m sure some of you have seen this going around on Facebook.
AJ has been selected by his teacher to represent his school in NYLF Pathways to STEM summer program! This is an incredible honor, but a very costly one. We are sending him regardless of the contributions we receive, but want to reach out to our fellow friends and family who support AJ and his journey.
I will do a giveaway and select one person for a $100 gift certificate for my salon services for anyone who donates $20 or more!
We are so proud of this guy and the dedication he shows in every aspect of his life! He is so cool.

DIY lava lamps 🌋age 4+ 🌋These lava lamps are simple to make and are so cool! Ingredients needed: vegetable oil, water, food coloring, fizzing Alka-Seltzer tablets and glass or plastic bottle. Fill the bottle halfway with vegetable oil. Then fill about 1/4 more with water. Add 5-6 drops of food coloring then drop in the tablet and let the fun begin! For full instructions go to raisingdragons.com and search “lava lamps”. Follow us @raisingdragons4 for more fun kids activities! #preschool#kindergarten#montessori#science
Fill the Balloon 🎈ages 3+ 🎈This simple experiment demonstrates the space air molecules take up as they are heated and cooled. Start with a pan of hot water and a pan of ice cold water. Then take an empty two liter bottle and put a balloon over the top. Place the bottle in the hot water and watch the balloon inflate. Then move the bottle to the cold water and watch it deflate. The science behind this experiment is that as air molecules get hot , they move around more and occupy more space, thus inflating the balloon. When the ballon was moved to the ice water, the molecules cooled off, moved closer together and occupied less space. So cool! Thanks to our cousin Joshua for helping us out with this experiment. 👍🏻 Follow us @raisingdragons4 for more fun kids activities! #kindergarten#preschool#science

Saw this and thought of our conversation last night on overcoming #selfdoubt... It's time we silence the lying voice in our heads and Do/Be what we're called to Be. 💯
