DIY Wind Tube comes to John Muir CSW!

My crafty Dad engineered this awesome DIY wind tube for the John Muir Community Science Workshop. Kids will be able to design their very own flying machines out of recycled material & test them out in this top notch creation. It also works to show the Bernoulli effect, although I’ll take the tube out for that one. Thank you Dad & thank you to Home Depot for the generous gift card donated to the New Leaf Collaborative, your gift is hard at work.

500+ mya Trilobite Fossil at John Muir CSW!

Thanks Dan Sudran of Mission Science Workshop for the extremely generous donation from his summer travels to rock quarries throughout Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Arizona. He donated this 500+ million year old fossil of a Trilobite, three 50+ million year old slate slabs with Eocene fish fossils and several others including some volcanic rock to our John Muir Community Science Workshop! Thanks Dan!
