I just got a 3D printer and will use it for our STEM fair where kids can invent ANYTHING (does not have to work). I am pretty psyched! I hope it is a cool as I think it will be- It is still not running - I am missing a part.

I always like bringing in weather to the conversation. I live in Boulder, CO and was able to talk about the recent floods, and where that weather pattern cam from. it's a great way to make the water cycle relevant and the kids like crazy weather events. Yelena

This is great! I use Phet ALL of the time! It is great for labs and they are working hard to make more HTML5 sims so you don;t need java!

5 Awesome resource
I loved this resource. It inspired me to use the info and the slides for my students. I also loved the frequent checks for understanding. Again, this is something I will bring into my middle school science classroom.
