Here you go. You can read them all.

A friend of mine is on a very famous drive time radio show and they do a lot of funny news stories and goof on them. Recently there was one about a guy who went in to rob a convenience store with his finger as a gun. Only he forgot to put his hand under his jacket. So there he stood pointing his finger at a very startled convenience store employee. Finally, he grabbed a bag of Sun Chips and walked out. Duh.

Science Projects Made Easy

Finding good answers to the challenging questions of today will require that we have the best young minds working on those answers. They need to have the best science education possible.

Good science education is very important for our country’s future, including our national security.  If our enemies were the first ones to develop new weapons, and we couldn’t defend them we’d be in big trouble.

What is the best way to learn science?  Maybe there’s not just one “best way.”  Science projects and science experiments give crucial interactive experiences that help many children learn better.

A major university did a study about science courses and science majors a year ago. They found that 90 percent of college students abandon science as a major because of perceived poor teaching; and, of those who continue to study science, 74 percent of them think their science teaching is of bad quality.

This is not good news for science teachers.  They are perceived as not doing a good job engaging the students and getting them involved. Not that it is easy to do so. Students need interactive learning to get the most out of science classes.

In today’s world young people live with technology that has transformed their day to day lives. Watching videos on their cell phones, sending photographs and text messages through thin air — teachers need to get to these students involved in different ways than before.   Ironically the best way to engage science students is to use one of the oldest and most traditional ways of teaching science.

Science projects and science experiments need to become a part of everyday science curricula.  Not just for students who participate in science fair projects which often are seen as extra-curricular.  They require involvement of parents who often aren’t available to help all the time.  Projects need to be done in school, not at home.

That’s why internet resources like the Science Projects Store are so valuable.  This new website has a searchable database of 4,137 science project kits and over 5,000 science project books.   This is a great science project resource that parents, students and teachers need to know about.  (Please pass this article on to those who might be interested.)

On the Science Projects Store site you can search for any type of science project or experiment that exists. It has kits, books toys, games and accessories concerning:

1. Elementary school science projects 2. Math science projects 3. Winning science fair projects, 4. Fun experiments with science for children 5. Solar energy science projects 6. “Green” earth science projects 7. Energy science projects, 8. Science projects in chemistry 9. Scientific method projects 10. Science project with a volcano 11. Science projects with plants 12. Music science projects 13. Middle school science experiment 14. Water science projects 15. High School science projects

This website a great resource for science educators and parents,  and it also answers the question: “What do I buy my children for the holidays?” The gifts available from the Science Projects Store will entertain while they educate, and stimulate children’s brains, possibly raising their IQ.

Who knows, this website may help students enjoy science education more than ever before, and inspire them to solve the major problems faced by the world today!

Leo Vidal is a consultant who has been very active in public school issues for many years. He has over 25 years of experience as an adviser, author and speaker on many education topics. He believes that internet educational resources like the Science Projects Store are sorely needed. Go to the Science Projects Store for your holiday shopping.

eMindful Offers a Chocolate Taste-Testing Class — Live and Online for Stressed-out Parents

Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 6, 2007

eMindful offers live, online classes with renowned French Chef Michelle Sugiyama. With all the stressors on today’s parents, children are eager to offer Mom or Dad a gift that can ease everyday tension. Chef Sugiyama’s Chocolate and Mindfulness!? class teaches participants how to savor chocolate and bring balance to parents’ busy lives.

In eMindful’s virtual classroom, students see, hear, and interact in real-time with Chef Michelle and other class participants – in the comfort of home or office. Three classes are currently scheduled for January and February 2008. A simple home computer and internet connection are all that is needed.

This is the perfect gift for the busy mom or dad to reduce stress and bring balance. In a June 2007 New York Times article, Dr. Susan L. Smalley, a professor of psychiatry at U.C.L.A. and director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC), tells the story of a child in a pre-kindergarten mindfulness class who offered her mom a solution to every day stress: “One 4-year-old noticed her mother succumbing to road rage while stuck in traffic. She said, ‘Mommy, Mommy, you have to sing the (mindfulness) breathing song’,” Dr. Smalley said. Susan Kaiser Greenland, founder of the InnerKids Foundation, calls mindfulness “the new ABC’s — learning and leading a balanced life.” Combining chocolate with life balancing skills makes a unique and wonderful holiday gift.

HOW IT WORKS:

eMindful ships class participants individually wrapped slices of gourmet chocolate marked “A”, “B”, “C” to be taste-tested during class. A Chocolate and Mindfulness!? gift certificate is $ 49.50 and can be purchased on eMindful.com. An elegant gift certificate will be emailed to you, along with gift number, for printing or eMindful is happy to mail a holiday wrapped gift certificate directly to your loved one.

The class includes access to the eMindful virtual classroom and 3 slices of gourmet chocolate. Three classes are currently scheduled in the eMindful virtual classrooms for January and February 2008. Technical support is available — no problem for first time computer users.

eMindful will donate $ 5 per gift certificate to UCLA’s MARC mindfulness and ADHD research. Mindfulness techniques help children with ADHD to maintain better focus and may help to minimize medication usage.

The Chocolate and Mindfulness!? classes are extremely popular with students? reserve your seat now for Mom and Dad. You may purchase gift certificates at eMindful.com. Gift certificate donations to UCLA will be made on certificates purchased before December 31, 2007.
