Soon she was happily experimenting and playing while the older students disassembled old vcr players and harvested the motors inside.  (The next day, a student named Bryan came back with two nine volt battieries and one of the extracted vcr moters attached to his toy truck, which now was a motorized toy truck).  

It happened, that some of the boys in the class came over to look at the magnets, and we put together an impromptu demonstration of inductance using a strong magnet, a heavy coil of wire, and an LED - all of which Kip had ready to hand, even though it wasn't part of a fixed ...read more...

2009-05-11 Thanks to Teachers and school staff
Its nearing the end of the school year, and many teachers, librarians, counselors and other school staff are facing an uncertain future.  If nothing else, at least parents and community members can take an opportunity now to show appreciation.  Write a note, give an end of year gift - its something!  I like to do a gift certificate from a local Tucson merchant, support local businesses and teachers at the same time.

To get involved more with the future of TUSD, one motivated and effective group is Voices for Education.  See their website at http://voicesforeducation.org  "
