Another great Sunday morning

I've posted many pictures of Brooke & Courtney playing 'scientist'.  They love to experiment with various substances to see what they can do.

This morning we made Gak.  Gak is a silly putty-type substance that can be made with the right combination of Borax, Elmer's Glue and water.  For effect you add food coloring.

The result is a great deal of fun.  From there they go to an old standby--vinegar and baking soda.  Courtney especially loves doing this to watch the resulting eruption.

Kids love to learn.  It's as natural as eating.  But when I was in grade school, science was reading a chapter from a book, answering questions, reading more, answering more questions, etc.

Today grade-school science is often hands-on experimentation.   That's the way it should be.

It's science that's going to save the world--not religion or politics.
