Queen of the Nerds

So, I'm living and breathing science these days. I have a promethean board... that's a smart chalkboard that talks to my computer. So all of my lessons are going into powerpoint, with embedded problems, hyperlinks, etc. And I'm trying like crazy to make them interesting. Who likes boring powerpoint?

My school is FanTastic for the technology. But for the older stuff? We have 7 balances for the whole school. We only have 8 meter sticks. No working stop watches, one tiny weight set. No molecular model kits. A few bar magnets... it's so sad.

So, I've been buffering up my supplies. Some of the stuff I had from when John's old company was closed. They threw stuff out, I had him bring it home, I've taken most of it to school. I've been an Amazon Rewards maven - haven't used my rewards in years, but now they're all gone. Bought school supplies with them. Things like magnifying glasses and stop watches.

But where do I get things like cenrifuges? Or super magnets? Huh?

Went to throw away my Sonicare toothbrush head this morning, and looked at the bottom. Hey, what do you know? Those magnets look pretty strong. Sure enough, they are.

If you have an old centrifuge you're dumping, any balances of any sort? let me know?
