This is super duper cool. Can we stop it with the gas and electricity and fossil fuels now, please? I mean… FOSSIL fuels. Let’s get with the times. I hope this is why they delayed the iPhone 6 (or so the rumors say)! xoxo, Mandiesunshinychick:

Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

If you click here, or the image above (which is an EXTREME close-up of SAND!), you can read the article about… extreme close-ups of sand!  I thought it was pretty rad!

Cats are liquid. “Liquids … take the shape of the container while maintaining a constant volume”. That’s it. So cats are liquid.

That seems pretty legit to me.  Any science teachers beg to differ?

If I was a Chemistry teacher & cell phones weren’t against the rules in our school, I would TOTALLY put up a big poster like this in my room!

QR Code Periodic Table with Symbols
Each element is a QR code that, when scanned, takes you to a video about that element. Amazing!
Oh, AND it’s available for download as a HUGE image (that you could probably print out and hang in your classroom).
