So cool! 
Fluorescein

Fluorescein is a dark orange synthetic organic compound that is widely used as a fluorescent tracer dye. When dissolved in water or alcohol, it gains the ability to fluoresce when exposed to ultraviolet light (494nm absorption maxima). The resulting fluorescence has an emission maxima around 512nm (green light). If the local concentration of fluorescein becomes too high, it will actually self-quench and result in a murky yellow emission. This can be seen occurring at the bottom of the glass.

Fluorescein is also known as the color additive Yellow No. 7, is used to dye antifreeze green, and was used to dye the Chicago River green on St. Patrick's Day.

Interesting. What you can do with simple things at home! 
Science at home doesn't need to be about expensive kits or special equipment, you've probably got most things you need in your kitchen cupboards already.

This sounds interesting! 
Japan-based Kyocera Corporation is gearing up to build and deploy the world’s largest floating solar plant. The current project, according to the developers, is part of a worldwide movement aimed at conserving valuable agricultural space, especially in countries like Japan where usable land is scare and expensive.
