Watch Out for Old Women:
Day: February 8, 2011
Great astronomy programme for kids
“Do we really need the moon?” will be available for another 10 hours here. I don’t think it actually *is* directed at kids, but it’s definitely accessible for them. And it’s hosted by the awesome Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. Along with learning about the moon (and the tides, and all that stuff that Bill O’Reilly doesn’t get), they’ll develop some pretty awesome ideas of what scientists look like. Aderin-Pocock also makes a point of mentioning that she struggled in school due to dyslexia. Inspiring stuff!
I’m so glad I didn’t have a baby shower
because I might have been asked to eat one of these.
For the history of how this came to be, go to the ever-fabulous Cake Wrecks.
