A surprise hit among the Christmas gifts was this Thames & Kosmos Electronics Workshop:
Cute W picked this out for M, and they’ve had fun doing the experiments together. Today was M’s favorite one yet: they made an electrical circuit that was only complete when they put the two ends of a wire in a cup full of water.
This has been a father-daughter venture, so I didn’t know much about it. I decided to interview M:
Me: “So, are the experiments easy or hard to do?”
M: “They’re pretty easy if you’re someone who know what they’re doing. Like me.”
Me: “Did I hear you guys reading a story or something?”
M: “Yes. It’s got a story about Robert the Robot who’s going into space. It teaches lots of technical science stuff, which sounds really boring, but it’s actually cool. Really cool.”
Score one for STEM promotion at our house!
Now the girls are settled in their pajamas and reading, but they’re going to be allowed to say up late to watch the Broncos with Daddy. Soon it’ll be time for some Buffalo Chicken Dip. Life is good.
