This site appears to have a whole bunch of practical information on making and launching your own water rockets made out of plastic beverage bottles. Big fun!

My sister Kathy first put me on to this cool Periodic Table of the Elements. The guy has done some very nice work on it and has an awesome collection of Chemical Elements. Visit this site to learn about the Chemical Elements that make up the world around us.

Spark, Bang, Buzz and Other Good Stuff! This site is in the garage science category. I love these sites where a creative and intellingent individual just explores and has fun and then shares the results.

Karen and I have been having a great time with these logic puzzles! I hope you enjoy them too. It's nice that they give you the matrix all set up for the solution. It saves paper and time.

Feel free to check back from time to time for more suggested adventures, and don't forget to have fun!
