As always we love Kickstarter projects. These days with billions of dollars going to software startups, programming is a hot trend. There is a neat projecta called Code Monday Island I am not sure how it exactly is played, but this looks awesome. Translating programming into a board game is a great idea. Fund this project today!
In March we made paper airplanes. Symmetry, paper, Bernoulli! Fun!
Magnets are fun and exciting. Real magnets are from iron or electro magnets. In physics class I remember learning that magnatism does not exist and it really is changing electron fields. Yes, that is true. What is really cool is that to fully explain why magnatism exists, the new pysics fields of special relativity and quantum mechanics are needed. Both only recently worked out in the last 100 years. And we have been using compases for a while. Wow and awesome!

Thanks for coming out on the super hot day to learn about Archimedes screw. Here is the write up. Thanks for coming, see you next month.
If you have been to a class before, you can probably guess what the fulcrum demonstration will involve!
