    The Solar Robot-Happy Hopping Frog would be a very cool project to build. Wouldn’t mind a solar powered water pump for the pond…do you have adaptable projects like that to spark my kids imaginations. Who knows we could build a solar village from one little frog 😉

    I just love the one breath Bernoulli bag — it is so amazing and would leave such an impression on the students. Not only would they be learning about the properties of air molecules, but they would also see a reinforcement of why you should never make snap judgements in science! I definitely wanrt to try this product.

    1st Entry: Besides the UV beads, which are totally awesome, I’d love to do the Laminar Flow experiement. I know the physics is way beyond my elementary students, but come on, turning back time? even if they don’t fully understand why it happens it is still cool! SSS team can you sell the jar and crank aparatus on the website?

    2nd Entry: I’ve been signed up for the Experiment of the week for some time now. That’s how I found out about the Laminar Flow (i’ve watched it many times and am still amazed). Corn syrup is far out!

    4th Entry: Added a UV Skinz button to my brand spanking new blog, I’m getting to be a pro on “the box” as I like to call it. When school starts I will be using the blog in our program (I hope)

    yes, sunscreen isn’t always enough, is often not used correctly and some folks have skin allergies or sensitivities to chemicals that sunscreens can contain. i think these are wears that are not made with any chemicals or lotions. The UV protection is in the tight weave of the fabric. Wearing UV protective clothing, such as our fun, cool UV Skinz sun protective swim shirts,and they looks stylish toooooo, i will sure go for it…

    thanks for sharing it…

    Can’t pick just one thing I’d like to try! There are way too many fun things in Steve’s store. I’m always recommending it to other teachers and parents. But I would like to try the glo germ lotion to help kids understand how easy it is to transfer germs, and I will be doing the bacteria growth experiments using nutrient agar and petri dishes this year. I have already introduced the Quirkles to our preschool and will continue with that this year. Thank you Steve for your enthusiasm, great videos and experiment descriptions, and for all the great stuff in your store! I love it.

    I would love to try the cloud in a bottle experiment. I tried this previously using a different method, and was not successful. I’ve seen Steve Spangler do this and was amazed by how well it worked.

    I’ve signed up for the Science Experiment of the Week, Subscribed to the Steve Spangler RSS feed, Posted a bulletin on MySpace with the UVSKin button, Added Steve Spangler Widget to the same bulletin as well as added it to my Facebook page, I follow UV Skin and Steve Spangler Science on Twitter and Tweeted the contest, I finally found the right Facebook fan page to comment on. I couldn’t get the hyperlinks to work on facebook and the widget is on facebook but looks scrunched. The widget on MySpace looked blank but put it on there anyways.

    Thank you for having this contest.

    The students in my Kindergarten class would love using the UV beads. All of the Steve Spangler products that I have purchased have been a big hit with the children. I would love to try the Airzooka! The children would go wild!!!

    My son just went to a friends birthday party, where all the games were experiments and materials from you site. He stated, “This is the best birthday party I have ever been too!” Tall words for a nine year old boy! :)He is hooked and excited about learning more about science!
