How to get kids to love science

Maybe your kids already love science. If so, great! If not, these creative strategies can help. Ready to spark a love of science in the students near you? Here are five ways to get started. Encourage students to pick one action from the list below and try it out.

1. Upgrade the science fair project. Before you create that foaming tabletop volcano, check out these curiosity-powered experiments from Make, the Exploratorium, and mad scientist Grant Thompson. Which one will you try next? Science fair optional.

2. Join the citizen science brigade. ”Citizen scientists” are volunteers who help to collect and analyze research data in fields ranging from archaeology to zoology. Explore citizen science project options here, here, and here.

3. Invent a solution to a real-world problem. In Kenya, student Richard Turere invented a solar-powered way to prevent lion attacks. In Malawi, a young William Kamkwamba harnessed the wind to power his family’s home. In Hong Kong, students in Cesar Harada‘s class work together to address environmental threats to the ocean. Now it’s your turn. What problem do you care about enough to solve — and how will you do it? To filter options quickly, try the Google Science Fair’s Make Better Generator.

4. Research quirky, open-ended questions. Science is the story of humans asking ”why?” “how?” and “what if?” about what they observe. What questions will you ask of the world? To get inspired, check out these questions no one knows the answer to (yet).

5. Explore science fiction. Futurists believe that science fiction can predict the future — or at least provide us with a way to imagine and prototype the future. Do you agree? Before you decide, read one of the short sci-fi excerpts shared here, or watch a video from the Superhero Science series.

You're artwork is so cute and quirky! 1st question: Did Sasuke keep Sakura's fish note all folded up in his wallet/on his locker wall because he thought it was sweet/romantic? 2nd: What kind of out of the ordinary gift would Sasuke give to Sakura? :3

Hi! Thanks for liking my valentines comic! /// Sorry for the late reply. 

To answer your first question he probably left it in his locker and regretted it really quickly. 

As for your second question I find Sasuke to be one of those people that aren’t very good at giving gifts but tries his best anyway lol.

Prompt: hey babe I have a request. can you do a Draco x reader where she teases him (only one allowed) and like pushes him around into saying who he likes and his friends join in on the teasing cause they know (it’s the reader duh) idk ur the writer but I’d really appreciate it cuz ur blog is life
A/N: thank for lit words bless

MASTERLIST.

Your constant teasing was finally getting on his nerves, and the fact that his friends joined in only made it worse. It was bad enough that you had such a flirty smile, bright (colour) eyes that always danced with mischief and silky hair that urged him to run his fingers through. The way you’d pucker your lips and narrow your irises when you were about to say something quirky or morally questionable, the way a grin slowly rose on your face when he told you to ‘shut the bloody hell up’ and the way your laughter ringed all made his heart flutter. It’s not like he could help falling for you – no one could. You just had something about you that he desired beyond anything else.

“What is your type, then?” You hummed, raising one carefully manicured brow “And please don’t tell me it’s the likes of Granger because if you will I will vomit.”

“No, no, (Name)” Blaise bugged in, smirking wolfishly as he cast his gaze to the blond haired boy beside him, “He definitely likes them wild, right, Draco?” He nudged him.

“Shut it, Zabini.” Draco scoffed.

“(Colour) haired–”

“–and (colour) eyed too!”

“Hold up a minute,” Blaise inquired, glancing at you, “Fellas, are you telling me the girl of Draco’s dreams is sitting right…next to…him?” The table boomed with laugher, yours included.  

“So what if she is?” Draco snapped, making the table shut up, all attention now on him. Turning his head to you, he found your normally smug face surprised, “I like you.” He declared, gazing into your (colour) eyes. Your agape mouth was shut in an instant as you gulped, heat tickling your cheek as you released an awkward chuckle.

“Well then,” You declared, “-we got him, boys.” Awkwardly, you took a sip of your drink as the table went in murmurs and low chuckles. Draco leaned in, his breath tickling your ear.

“Who got who?”

Requests are opened!

If You Need Some Laughs

My Tomodachi Life island is full of Mario characters and the things they say/do are amazing.

  • According to a session of Quirky Questions, Midbus:
  1. Hides Fawful in his apartment.
  2. Keeps a giant collection of souls.
  • Cackletta was at that session of Quirky Questions and was deeply concerned.
  • Cackletta likes crying every night; she confessed in Quirky Questions.
  • Mario wanted to confess his feelings to Cackletta as she was dating Bowser.
  • For the longest time, the game wanted Midbus to be with either Rosalina or Starlow.
  • At one point, Cackletta and Peach were best friends.
  • My Mii can’t stop thinking about Minion Quest.


“Doesn’t Peasley’s hair look great?” -Luigi

“I always strive to be a good person.” -Anshi/Dark Star

“I always say, if a restaurant doesn’t serve chicken, they’re outta cluck!” -Cackletta

“I really wanna become besties with Bowser.” -Fawful

“If Fawful were in a pickle, I would eat the pickle and get him out.” -my Mii

“How did Starlow/Bowser beat me at a video game?! It doesn’t make sense!” -Fawful

“If Peach and I joined forces, we could seriously conquer the world!” -Cackletta

Feel free to do something with these.

buzzfeed’s “which bojack horseman character are you” quiz should have a bunch of fun and quirky questions but only one result which is “you’re a lonely and directionless real life human trying to project fictional characters’ personalities onto yourself because you have no strong concept of your own identity”

Imagine Kenma playing Tomodachi Life and making the entire nekoma team into islanders (maybe Hinata too because Hinata saw Kenma playing it and insisted on making himself a mii) Kenma gives them funny clothes sometimes and makes them say weird things as catchphrases, laughing when Yamamoto and Inuoka serenade eachother or Kuroo over-enthousiastically puts his hands up during quirky questions when asked "who's into ass" or smth

Kuroo over-enthusiastically puts his hands up during quirky questions when asked “who’s into ass”

wrathion in cata: haha hey hey hey what up champions! it’s ya boy wrathion - another kooky talking black dragon character which is really what this xpac needed! never enough quirky black dragons with questionable moral centers! but i’m definitely not crazy like all the rest of my kind so i’m special - remember when you did a quest to rape and murder my mom? lol good times. anywho so hey can you help me do some genocide real quick? maybe kill my dad? thanks bro - oh btw the burning legion is on the def headin this way so maybe start thinking about dealing with that.
wrathion in mists of pandaria: umm but seriously tho guys, the legion. it’s coming, like right now. all these pandas and casual racism is great but maybe you should probs start thinkin bout those legion folks. the ones that are definitely coming to destroy everyone - like for realsies not fakesies. i have a voice actor and a unique model so you should really listen to me as im soothesaying the downfall of our world haha ok ok im sure you all have a handle on it right? but if you need help im totes available - just devoured the heart of a god and had my 2nd birthday so im ready to get on this - let’s do this thing y’all need a plan? i got a plan. got so many plans. ps anduin wrynn is kind of a lame dweeb right? is it just me?? thoughts/opinions?? 
wrathion in war crimes: well my other plans didn’t work since for whatever reason nobody is listening to me like at all. let’s do this other definitely not stupid thing instead since the legion is REALLY, TOTALLY ON THE WAY STILL. that never stopped being a thing that’s happening.
wrathion in warlords: whoa it’s like so crazy that releasing a violent war criminal into an alternate reality made no sense and did not turn out well?? did anyone else not see that coming like at all???
