Kids can help insert or glue on a perch and decorate the bird home. Secure it to a favorite tree or post, fill with seed suited for native birds and… read more

Clean Energy Science Kits Encourage STEM Interest

Clean Energy Science Kits Encourage STEM Interest

Considering that the future of clean energy and sustainable living sits squarely on the shoulders of our children, it’s important to not only encourage their interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, but to also put tools in their hands that can give them a taste of real-world applications. One great way to do that is by giving them a clean energy science kit, such as those offered by KidWind. From wind power projects and parts to solar and fuel cell projects, KidWind has a great selection of hands-on kits that can not only teach children the theories and science… read more

Can WiFi Signals Kill Plants?

Can WiFi Signals Kill Plants?

Noteworthy science isn’t only reserved for grant funded research studies. A team of ninth grade students from Hjallerup School in North Jutland, Denmark have created an international buzz among the realm of the scientifically involved. Lea Nielsen, Mathilde Nielsen, Signe Nielsen, Sisse Coltau and Rikke Berg recently decided to investigate WiFi routers and their effect, if any, on plant life for a class science project. Their findings are profoundly interesting. Similar published studies have also been done, many with related results. They had the idea for the study when they thought about their nightly cellphone habits, which sometimes included sleeping with them… read more
