3 Year-Old Sings Tom Lehrer's Elements SongRose turned 3 in November. It's been a little over a year since her initial elements video. She's still interested in elements, but not so much by playing the cards anymore, mostly via this song. She likes the video of Daniel Radcliffe singing it, and the one where two older girls sing a Japanese version.
She likes a lot of different songs right now, though, and I wouldn't say this one is even her favorite (that honor belongs to Daft Punk's "One More Time" at the moment). she can still sing the entire song and mostly get it right.
Sorry for the blank wall in the background.
Also, sorry for not putting bullets through any of her possessions at the end of the video, or for not telling her Joseph Kony is a bad guy! I heard those are popular things for dad videos these days. I'm not either of those kinds of dad. We just sing or listen to lots of songs and play with Play-Doh usually. Oh, and constantly watch Superwhy for some good spelling and reading practice.

Squishy Circuits -- Sylvia's Mini Maker ShowMore information: http://wp.me/p22K2I-IkA
Are you curious about experimenting with electronics, but the fear of electric shock or soldering iron burns keep you away?
Why not try, squishy circuits! With a special recipe of food-safe, kitchen made pliable dough developed at the University of St. Thomas, kids of all ages can easily use their hands to mold their very own simple circuits right before your eyes! Lets go!
Terra Incognita VideoProject Terra Incognita -- High resolution video and photography from near orbit. This is a both a science and photography project being conducted by a group of six 6th grade girls in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Their goal is to send a payload into near-space, take measurements as well as high resolution pictures and video and re-acquire the payload after coming back to earth. Find out how they intend to accomplish this task with the link below:
Ada Lovelace: Great MindsAda Lovelace, Daughter of Lord Byron, was somehow the first author of a computer program...even though she lived more than a century before the first modern computer.

The Human Heat Powered FlashlightWe're so proud of you, Ann. Your participation in the Google Science Fair has been an amazing experience for all of us. Congratulations on winning the 15-16 year age category!
Ann Makosinski won gold at the National Science Fair in Lethbridge with her project, the hollow flashlight, which runs on heat from the human hand. She also won the Energy Challenge Award and prizes to boot. She has been selected as a finalist (and the only representative from Canada) in the Google Science Fair 2013! Ann took second place overall at the Vancouver Island Science Fair earlier this year.

WHY DO WE NEED MORE FEMALE ENGINEERS? (read below)
Engineers are solving some of the biggest challenges our society faces. They are critical to the world economy, earn higher salaries and have greater job security. And they are 89% male. We believe engineers can't responsibly build our world's future without the female perspective. GoldieBlox is here to bring the female voice into engineering.
Girls in EngineeringWomen are an under-represented minority in STEM fields, particularly in engineering. Here is one PLTW school's success story on getting more girls involved in engineering.
