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 :)

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 :)

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.

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?

+Ryan Fickes well when i said flouride i meant the one tht is added to our water and you knew that so to go into such an explanation says that your are thinking you are more intelligent than i. that is o.k.  i still stand that the link said: now..i think i can "steaI"... so if that is the way one is taught that to a child is saying  you don't have enough steal it. so the child comes home and says i steal then imagine. not dealing in facts and i know the school system they do not teach things easily. so why would you think that this would be any different. to use such phrases as steal is teaching values that do not exist. sounds kind of like something only a gov like ours would do. besides the fact that we rank what 39th in education in the world so the past algorithm here suggests that this is only another failure of our educational system. now that sounds like a truth and i do understand truth--our gov does not deal in that either. the whole thing made no sense to me so how are you going to teach me? i do not do good w/patterns myself never have not even in school. it will be just like everything else in our system that is a failure and that suggests the whole system of gov.

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 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.

That's a really cool idea of how to explain AI not the daunting task of machine learning
