Day 1, make bricks. Day 2, make a light bulb. Day 149, turn a glass of water upside without spilling it. Day 226, make a water wheel. The science just keeps coming with this information-packed book, which uses common materials and includes lots of experiments that kids can do on their own.

Here are some high-flying, gravity-defying, Nobel-prize–winning science freebies and contests we’ve run across this week. (Okay, maybe they haven’t won the Nobel prize—yet…) Check them out.
Calling all K–8 teachers! Carolina Biological is giving away two inquiry-based science investigation kits with hands-on materials for your entire class. To enter, all you need to do is share what you love most about teaching science. Enter here. Hurry, the contest ends TODAY!
What is a glass sponge? How does sand form? The free National Ocean Service website answers these questions and lots more. You’ll find videos, games, projects, and all things ocean-related. Dive in at oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts.
Wondering why they don’t give out a Nobel Prize for the best freebies, hmmm….
PS: Speaking of prizes, our WIN contests end on December 1—and that will be here before you know it! Enter now.
