Congratulations to the Making & Science team (a fantastic group of Googlers) for launching the Science Journal for students to do science using Android and/or Arduino!

If you use Physics Gizmo, I highly encourage you to give this a try, my feelings will not be hurt if you make the switch :)

I rediscovered this book when my son took it out from the library. I wish I'd seen it when I was a middle school science teacher there's a whole year's worth of exploration here.

One thing they missed in the article. I recall Adam saying a while back, that early in the show they wanted to hype up Jamie and Adam's conflicts and disagreements. They told the producers they weren't going to do that.

So many shows today look like there is a lot of drama about nothing just to make it seem more exciting. What I love is even though they weren't friends, they collaborated well. They found a way to make it work. That's a lesson we could all learn from :)

One of my favorite teams at +Google, their interactions with technology always strike me as magical.

Also if you are an educator, Google Tone is a great way to get everyone on the same page (web page that is :) without having to send an email.

Google's matching 50% of DonorsChoose projects for students with special needs. A few dollars goes a long way in a classroom!

TIL that Xmas was not a secularization of Christmas but a legitimate abbreviation based on the first letter of Jesus in Greek Chi or X.

So keep the Christ in Christmas but feel free to use the X.

Such a great program and I love seeing the focus on bringing more women into technical careers. Check it out for free before it goes to theaters.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one.

Before telling me how bad Common Core is read this. It's different than what we learned but in a good way. Would you rather have kids memorize (leads to anxiety, dislike of math, and results in forgetting anyway) or understand?
