Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fanastic Website with Supporting PBS Episodes on Vimeo and tpt

This website has so much to offer for young minds on everyday science and engineering. If you go to tpt or Vimeo you can purchase 9 different videos that support each of the nine Science Files. Click on the link "Science Files" to see the 9 files on different science and engineering topics. You do not have to purchase the videos to use the site but if you do, you have a nice review and reinforcement of the material taught in the videos. These videos have aired on PBS Rhode Island and both the website and the video series have won Silver Choice Parents Awards. If you want something interesting and fun to do with your child that would really give them a head start in the STEM fields....this site is for you! Plus the blog has many interesting topics and some great math problems! You can find something for all ages on this site. Not only does it promote science and engineering to but also promotes an appreciate of the earth and being environmental responsible! We have personally had Kim come and teach science programs at our school and all the teachers and students loved her!!!!
