#ThinkerThursday - LEGO Boost

If you've ever wished your childhood Lego creations could come to life, your dreams are now closer to reality. Lego has just unveiled a new sub-brand called Boost which promises to do just that. The base set contains a combination of sensors, motors and a unique companion app that teaches kids how to code so that they can program their new robot friends.

Boost is designed for kids ages seven and up. Lego's more advanced Mindstorms is aimed at young adults. It will be available later this year.

Each year, millions of eyes from all over the world are focused on the sparkling Waterford Crystal Times Square New Year's Eve Ball. At 11:59 p.m., the Ball begins its descent as millions of voices unite to count down the final seconds of the year, and celebrate the beginning of a new year full of hopes, challenges, changes and dreams.

For Times Square 2017, 288 of the Waterford triangles introduce the new Gift of Kindness design consisting of a circle of rosettes symbolizing unity with the fronds reaching out in an expression of kindness. 288 are the Gift Of Wonder design composed by a faceted starburst inspiring our sense of wonder. 288 are the Gift of Fortitude design of diamond cuts on either side of a crystal pillar to represent the inner attributes of resolve, courage, and spirit necessary to triumph over adversity. The remaining 1,824 crystal triangles are the Gift of Imagination design with a series of intricate wedge cuts that are mirrored reflections of each other inspiring our imagination.

When Chemicals React on #TeachMeTuesday

REKINDLING AN OLD FLAME

This fire magic trick is really a simple trick of science! Blow out a candle and relight it by passing a flame through the trail of smoke.

How it works: A candle burns wax vapor into carbon dioxide and water. When you blow out a candle there is still some wax vapor in the air, which you can heat to relight the candle. When you blow out the candle, the residue heat from the wick keeps vaporizing wax. The 'smoke trail' you see isn't smoke - rather it is vaporized wax. So by bringing another flame close to the fuel trail, you can reignite the candle!
