What is weather? The way of the dragon: chemistry for the youngest By Anna Gunnarsson What makes a good Berta activity? All the Berta activities have been tried out with young children many times over several years to ensure that they are interesting and easy to do. When we choose activities for Berta and her young experimenter friends, we always look for these key elements: - Safety: can the children safely experiment with the ingredients, even if some of them happen to end up in their mouths (it doesn’t matter if they taste bad – but they have to be edible to find this out)?
A Terrifying, Fascinating Timelapse of 30 Years of Human Impact on Earth - Emily Badger A new interactive project from Google, NASA and the US Geological Survey. Since the 1970s, NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey have been amassing satellite images of every inch of our planet as part of the Landsat program. Over time, the images reveal a record of change: of cities expanding, lakes and forests disappearing, new islands emerging from the sea off the coast of rising Middle East metropolises like Dubai. If you could thumb through these historic pictures as if in a flip book, they would show stunning change across the earth's surface, in both our natural environments and our man-made ones. Now, the digital equivalent of that experience is possible – three decades of global change as GIF – in a project unveiled today between NASA, the USGS, TIME, Google, and the CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University.
