Science Games for the Classroom

I just came across this super fun amusement park themed science game through Google+. It's called Nanospace from Molecularium and the premise is simple. Learn and demonstrate your knowledge of science through games. Educator resources for Molecularium can be found on this page. I played one of the games in the waterpark and it demonstrated how the atoms move around in water at different temperatures. Even though it wasn't hard for me to figure out, it was very engaging and I wanted to keep playing. If you are a science teacher, I would definitely check it out. If kids latch on to it, you can use it as a reward if they do their work. If you do use it, let me know what they think!

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
