Cloud Freebie!Thanks for checking out this freebie! I love teaching my students about clouds every year. Theyve all had the experience of finding different cloud shapes in the sky, and are fascinated to learn about different types of clouds and the weather they predict.Like what you see?

A great science website. Figure out your childs likes and dislikes in science and get a project they can do. Katie's doing a science fair for the first time. This site helped tremendously to find her project!! (Especially since I'm not that into science!)

Tomorrow Daily 063: The Google Science Fair, a custom open-source robot and more

There was only one official Grand Prize awarded, but they were all super-interesting projects each entrant should be immensely proud of. Here's the full photo of the winners from this year's event:
