Nestle Family Summer Block Party: Day 4

The summer in New Orleans is nothing if it isn’t HOT and HOTTER!  While I love taking the kids outside to play, some days it is hard when the temperature is already 90 degrees at 8am!  Today, I thought I would feature a great indoor science activity for those days when it’s just impossible to go outside!

The Howard Hughes Medical Institute has put together a really great “cool science” site for kids!  Some of the experiments that will satisfy just about any curious kid include “diving in to the miniature world with a microscope” and “specks, flecks and particles in the air.”   The site also features a really neat “Ask a Scientist” section for all those questions Mom and Dad just can’t answer.  The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is also a great resource for science fair projects!

Think you have a budding Scientist on your hands?  Find out what some of the most prominent biomedical researchers think you need in order to make it happen!
