    This is great! I'm going to have to check it out since science offers so many amazing things. Something that was discovered in our own backyard, so to speak, is called "AeroGel"http://eetd.lbl.gov/ECS/aerogels/kistler-educator.htmlA picture of this stuff is below, scroll down to the third pichttp://www.aero.org/publications/crosslink/fall2006/backpage.htmlA couple of things that are fun for kids are the Levitronhttp://www.levitron.com/And radiometerhttp://www.amazon.com/Tedco-01800-Radiometer/dp/B0007YFJI2The USA needs to, once again, become a manufacturing giant....without outsourcing...items need to be discovered, invented and made right here.A good way to insure this is to get kids interested in science. There is so much we don't know and there's a whole wide world out there and inside ourselves.
