There is still plenty of summer left, and I want to give parents (as well as elementary and science teachers) an opportunity to win a book that will help kids take full advantage of it. Catch the Wind, Harness the Sun: 22 Super-Charged Projects for Kids, by Michael J Caduto, is full of fun, engaging science projects that will get kids off their duffs and out of the house (at least temporarily).
Besides the 22 projects, which utilize everything from swamp gas to solar power, there's also a list of resources for you and/or your kids to follow up so that the learning can continue.
This is the kind of book that should be in every home, and in every late elementary and middle school classroom library. Here's your chance to get a copy: email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Catch The Wind Giveaway" by 11:59pm PST Tuesday. One random entrant will win. Good luck!
