Homeschool Doings

My daughter and her friend spent a very rainy spring day yesterday making many new colors from the few bottles we had. Blue, yellow, and red became purple, brown, tan, and orange. Their excitement and joy at creating color on a gray day was priceless.

We go through a lot of tape. Case in point: my son decided to perform an experiment on his remote control car. Would an erector set battery hooked up to some propellers from a remote control airplane (now defunct) and taped to the back of the car make it go faster? The jury is still out on this one. He's talking about "thrust" and "propeller positioning."
