Team America Rocketry Challenge
http://www.rocketcontest.org/
Want to design, build, and fly model rockets?
When we first featured this rocket contest, it was advertised
as a oneoff celebration of the 2002 Centennial of Flight; but
the enthusiasm about the event was so great that its sponsors,
the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) and the National
Association of Rocketry (NAR), were asked to hold the contest
annually.
Since then, approximately 7,000 students from across the nation
have competed in TARC each year. NASA invites TARC finalists to
participate in the Student Launch Initiative, an advanced
rocketry program.
Register by November 30, 2009.
Climate Classroom
http://www.greennexxus.com/omaog/us/education.aspx
This curriculum encourages students to
analyze the science of global warming and its relevance to
current events and their daily lives, through classroom
activities, lesson plans, and family and community
activities.
The One Million Acts of Green Program works closely with the
National Wildlife Federation, The Climate Project, and its
website partner GreenNexxus to provide ageappropriate
resources for K12 and beyond.
Book of Odds
http://www.bookofodds.com/
The Book of Odds contains hundreds of thousands of Odds
Statements, from the odds of being the only one to survive a
plane crash, to the odds of having a heart attack, to the odds
of having ever eaten cold pizza for breakfast. The company's
mission is to increase knowledge of and intuition about
probabilities.
 Search for odds of concern or interest
 Compare the odds of events both unfamiliar and mundane
 Explore calibration pairs, comparison pairs, topical lists,
time series, geographic distributions, and more
 View odds in probability order
 Create the "Odds of Me," a list of Odds Statements that
apply directly to you ("I am that 1 in 287!")
... and much more.
