Thinkery. * Maria's Self *: DIY Toilet Bombs - Deodorize & Kill Bacteria! Just Drop One in the Bowl;-))) Remember I told you in my previous post that the next product in my store will be an "outside the box" one? Well, you've been warned;-))) I came up with the idea of Toilet Bombs a few months ago. At first I thought it would be embarrassing to make a post about them but I fell so much in love with these toilet bombs that I just HAD to share the idea with you - I'm seriously addicted!

When I drop them in the toilet bowl they start fizzing (= exploding;-) and not only do they smell amazing they also deodorize, kill the bacteria (including the odor-causing ones!) And keep the bowl clean. And on top of that, these bombs became a part of my bathroom decor - don't they just look adorable? WHAT I USE: (for approx. 24 bombs) --1 1/3 cup Baking Soda - amazing for all-natural cleaning AND deodorizing! --1/2 cup Citric Acid - (low-strength acid that exists naturally in fruits like lemons & oranges) - used in many kitchen & bathroom cleaners for its cleaning, whitening & deodorizing properties.

Making Glow Jars | The Gold Jellybean. Yesterday Sydney and I had a major art and craft day, and also experimented with making glow jars. They have been floating around Pinterest for awhile now and look like so much fun! However, there is one tutorial that frustrates me. The image is clearly Photoshopped, and I think it’s very misleading. So, I decided to make a couple of our own jars so we can share our experience and method with you. I must admit, frustration aside, I was intrigued with the photoshopped glow jar image, it’s actually called fairies in a jar, and I wanted to try and replicate the glowing ‘fairies’ that appear to be suspended in mid-air. To do this, I used a piece of tulle. You will need a glass jar, glow sticks (I picked some up from the dollar store), rubber gloves to protect your hands, scissors, I recommend protective eyewear, and a piece of tulle (optional).

If you are using the tulle, cut a piece slightly larger than the jar, and place inside. Now, put on those rubber gloves. Homemade lavender beeswax candle | lightlycrunchy. I finally got around to making a beeswax candle. I had a big block of beeswax just sitting around, waiting for me to do something with it. I have gifting plans for this one, but the rest of the gift awaits me getting off of my lazy behind and finishing it. Baby steps. Beeswax candles smell great, burn with less soot and smoke and have no chemicals.

Turns out they are easy to make too, but next time I will enlist the dad and his giant Paul Bunyan paws to grate the huge 5 lb block of beeswax. DIY Beeswax Candle Materials: beeswax (enough to fill your container)box graterglass measuring bowlessential oil of your choicebraided cotton wick and wick clipcontainer of choice to hold the candle Directions: Grate the beeswax and melt in 1 or 2 minute increments in the microwave, stopping and stirring occasionally. Once the wax has melted, add in an essential oil of your choice (supposedly 10-12 drops per every 5.5 ounces of wax). Like this: Like Loading... How To Make Glow In The Dark Paint.

It is still a bit of a work in progress but so far it is working pretty well. This is mainly an experiment which started as a Delta Robot Stereolithography Printer but ended as a more traditional Cartesian Stereolithography Printer. "I'll be honest, we're throwing science at the walls here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do.

" - Cave Johnson Stereolithography (SL or SLA from Stereolithography Apparatus) is an additive manufacturing process using a vat of liquid UV-curable photopolymer "resin" and a UV laser to build parts one layer at a time. I have wanted a 3D Printer for a while now and there are some very reasonably priced kits available like the Makerbot, Ultimaker and the RepRap project. I decided to enter this in the Epilog Challenge Contest because I could really use a laser cutter :-) I also have some ideas how to redesign this project, for creation on a laser cutter.

Introduction to Gears No good robot can ever be built without gears. As such, a good understanding of how gears affect parameters such as torque and velocity are very important. In this tutorial I will first talk about the basics of gears, how to use them properly along with simple equations, and then I will go into specific types of gears. Mechanical Advantage, Torque vs. Rotational Velocity Gears work on the principle of mechanical advantage. This means that by using different gear diameters, you can exchange between rotational (or translation) velocity and torque. As with all motors, by looking at the motor datasheet you can determine the output velocity and torque of your motor.

But unfortunately for robots, motors commercially available do not normally have a desirable speed to torque ratio (the main exception being servos and high torque motors with built in gearboxes). With gears, you will exchange the high velocity with a better torque. 3 lb-in * 2000rps = Torque_New * 300rps. How to Extract DNA from Anything Living. First, you need to find something that contains DNA. Since DNA is the blueprint for life, everything living contains DNA.

For this experiment, we like to use green split peas. But there are lots of other DNA sources too, such as: Spinach Chicken liver Strawberries Broccoli Certain sources of DNA should not be used, such as: Your family pet, Fido the dog Your little sister's big toe Bugs you caught in the yard Step 1: Blender Insanity! Put in a blender: 1/2 cup of split peas (100ml) 1/8 teaspoon table salt (less than 1ml) 1 cup cold water (200ml) Blend on high for 15 seconds. The blender separates the pea cells from each other, so you now have a really thin pea-cell soup. Step 2: Soapy Peas Pour your thin pea-cell soup through a strainer into another container (like a measuring cup). Add 2 tablespoons liquid detergent (about 30ml) and swirl to mix.

Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes. Pour the mixture into test tubes or other small glass containers, each about 1/3 full. Why am I adding detergent? How to Produce Power With Magnets.

"Resist Googling" & 5 Other Strategies For Meaningful Modern Research. “Resist Googling” & 5 Other Strategies For Meaningful Modern Research by Jane Healey, Ph.D It’s the start of a new school year, and many teachers will be planning research projects for their classes. Inquiry-based learning is one of the current buzz phrases, meaning students should ask and answer questions as a primary method in the classroom. It’s a great initiative, but it puts teachers on the hot seat. Most people teaching today weren’t trained to instruct students about researching in a technologically advanced world. 1. Most adults in a school environment can easily use Google to search for information. Students don’t know how the search engine works or makes money, and they usually can’t judge a site’s credibility even while using it.

Google isn’t “bad”; everyone, including students uses it for general information answers. 2. Many schools use LibGuides to keep students off popular search engines and focused on a specific range of useful resources. 3. 4. 5. 6. TheSkimm | We read.

Anybody can learn | Code.org. New Visual Tool Teaches Kids How to Code at Home. Digital Tools Tynker.com As the conversation about education shifts towards helping students develop useful skills in life beyond the classroom, a new spotlight on computer coding has emerged. Kids are impressing adults with their creativity, with their facility in learning new technologies, and their ability to design challenging video games. More and more, parents are beginning to see computer science and programming as the key to success for their children. Tools like Scratch and Alice have been around to help kids code for several years, but now commercial products are starting to compete, offering sleek new platforms focused on teaching how to think like a computer programmer.

“What most kids have is this creativity in their heads and they just want to put it out there.” Tynker is hoping that parents will see the value in teaching kids to code to invest in the course and access to Tynker’s tools.

Travers' "Mary Poppins," he made them a promise - one that he didn't realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops.

Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn't budge. He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp. In the box office until January 2014. Properties.
