And MS used to laugh about Chrome OS
Chromebooks were a punch line...until sales skyrocketed last year. Now Microsoft's fighting back with $200 laptops. Chris Hoffman explains how Chromebooks turned the tide.

at school you may get even less informa...

Watching this hangout on virtual field trips on our water systems in North America!
 
To celebrate our new Expedition videos we will take classrooms from around the country on a virtual field trip from coast to coast. Classrooms will follow the path of water from your home or streets to it’s final destination at Hyperion, Los Angeles’s largest wastewater treatment facility. Then, students will converse with Lou Toth, from the South Florida Water Management District as he takes you through their unique (and living!) Stormwater Treatment Areas.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to learn about how the water we use and see everyday is connected to the environment and the unique solutions cities and states are employing to protect our water planet.

To learn more about the hangout & the Next Generation Science Standards it focuses on, visit our website: http://bit.ly/HOA2415
This Hangout On Air is hosted by EarthEcho International. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Great topic for teachers as we approach the June (end-of-school-year) teenage brain.
A look at the science deep within the teenage brain and a celebration of evolution's masterpiece - the years that bring us judgment, adaptation and innovation. In short the years that make us human.

Nelson is one of my favourite biking tourism stops in BC. When I get to town my first stop is always the Sacred Ride. They are friendly and have super shuttles organized that help our out-of-towners find the trails to ride in a group. They also sell a map of all the local trails. A must have! See you guys next summer!

Normally I stay at provincial campgrounds but once I found this private campground it was amazing. Super for the family, they have fun activities like rock painting. The sites are huge, private and there are lots of trails on the site to explore with the family. We did the hike to Brome Lake with the kids 7 and 9 for a great morning activity.
