Super Cool Website and Contest for your Young Scientist (and a FREE Science Kit too)

The national radio show Pulse of the Planet and The National Science Foundation is hosting a neat competition for 3rd-6th graders called The Kids’ Science Challenge to encourage elementary school age children to think and act like real scientists.  

The Kids’ Science Challenge is in its third year.  The students are asked to propose a question, problem or experiment to one of the participating scientists that they would like to solve. I told my son Matt about this contest the other night and he got super excited. He is hoping a few of his buddies at school will work on a project with him.  He LOVES this kinda stuff!  The winning students will, in addition to other fun prizes get to go work with their scientists to see if they can find answers to their questions. The first 1,000 kids who enter will receive a free science kit.

This year’s participating scientists and challenges are:
Magical Microbes - These tiny creatures (bacteria, germs, viruses) help us in many ways—like making yogurt and cleaning up oil spills! The winner who thinks up a new use for microorganisms will work with scientists from the University of Massachusetts and New York University to think of a new way that microbes can help us. 

Super Stuff for SportsCan you come up with a new idea for a material that helps make your favorite sport safer or more fun? The winner in this category will work with materials scientists at the University of Southern Mississippi or at K2 Sports. 

Sensational Sounds – Starting with the concept of making air vibrate to make a sound, the winner in this category will work with Bart Hopkin, Northern California-based composer, musical instrument builder and head of the company Experimental Musical Instruments to build a new and unique musical instrument.
In addition to the free science kits, winners’ prizes will include visits to world-class science museums, aquariums, amusement parks, VIP tours at cool places, as well as microscopes and science kits from Thames and Kosmos and the Academy of Science for Kids.

Third to sixth graders can enter until February 28, 2011. More information and downloadable entry forms are available at www.kidsciencechallenge.com. Students can enter individually or in collaboration with friends, as school or afters school teams.  The SUPER COOL website also offers games, videos, info about the last two year’s winners, ideas for great science fair projects, plus plus, making it a really great resource for students and parents.

Have fun!

Need your baby's nursery to be warmer, quieter, or darker? Lightcatcher Curtains do it adorably!

I was offered a chance to do a review on some cool curtains recently.  These curtains are designed to keep light and sound out of your sleepy baby's room. Lightcatcher curtains feature Insuldark™ technology that controls light, thermal temperature and sound all through careful fabric construction and triple-layer protection.   They are also wider than standard panels for an aesthetically pleasing look (whether hung higher or wider than the window) on top of offering full coverage for your nursery window.

My friend Cindy Schroeder kindly offered to do the review.  She has little ones and a drafty room.  Cindy chose the sweet Blue Sailboats  Lightcatcher curtains from the BuyBuyBaby website which fit in perfectly with the nursery decor.  It couldn't have been an easy decision, -- they have pages of cute designs and colours to choose from - like the sailboats above and these sweet pink ducky ones!


Here is what Cindy has to say about them:
When it's cold outside and every room in the house is freezing too, I feel the need to check in on the kids almost every minute of the night. But with Lightcatcher for kids I don't feel the need to check on them at all. These curtains keep the cold out and the warm in. Not only is the room now warm it also keeps the light out, which is usually a problem for a room that faces the sun. Lightcatcher for kids has made my life easier because it helps my kids sleep better.
thanks Cindy!

Dockers proves Chivalry is Alive And Well!

Chivalrous Heroes in Atlanta
Over the holidays Dockers brand set out to find out which of the five major cities– Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, was the most Chivalrous.  As part of their campaign, Wear The Pants, Dockers staged a young woman or mature gentleman in a high traffic pedestrian area in a state of distress, where they clearly struggled with heavy and toppling file boxes and waited for someone to stop and help. 

Chivalrous Hero in Atlanta
Men and women stopped to help in all cities, but Atlanta beat them all!  Well, of course we did ;-), after all, we do have that good ol' southern hospitality on our side.  

Atlanta proved to be the most chivalrous with only up to 8 people passing the man or woman in distress before someone stopped. How did the other cities do?  Here are their results, 
2nd -San Francisco, 17 people passing by before a chivalrous individual stopped to help,
3rd - Chicago, 20 passersby before help was offered,
4th - Los Angeles, 35 passersby before someone took a moment to help, and
5th - New York (Manhattan), up to 40 people passing by our man or woman before someone stopped.

Hero to the Rescue in Atlanta The chivalrous were thanked with a new pair of Dockers khakis and were celebrated with an arm badge that read, “Chivalry is Not Dead!”  



You can watch the videos here for Atlanta and all the other cities!
