  1. I loved watching the Rube Goldbergs in action because I never knew you could make something so simple into a complex chain reaction. I want to learn more about Rube Goldberg and if he made any of his illustrations. You must have to be really famous to get a word named after you!!

  2. Sadly, my computer would not let me run the scripts. I did, however, find this wonderful website on chemistry! Check it out here: http://www.chem4kids.com/files/atom_intro.html. Though it’s just the atom page, I did learn tons about, well, atoms! They’re tiny little things, smaller than even a virus, that are responsible for the makeup of all matter on Earth! I didn’t know this before, but there are even things smaller than atoms! Inside of atoms there are tiny, tiny protons and even smaller electrons that make up the atom! Scientists even think there are things smaller than protons and electrons! Wow!
    I just think that chemistry is amazing! Though I’m way too young to understand it all, I know that it is responsible for our way of life today- inventions, foods, and even the weather exist thank to chemical reactions in our everyday lives!

    1. Great site Kelly! I encourage you to keep up on your study of chemistry. I’m glad you mentioned chemistry and foods because that area alone is fascinating!
