Happy St. Patrick’s Day weekend. Don’t miss my “leprechaun free” holiday ideas.


Take the Pi in the Sky Challenge


NASA celebrated Pi Day in true form with some incredible math challenges using pi to do rocket science.  Challenges include calculating a dust storm on mars, cloud computing, spotting storms, and discovering exoplanets. Take the challenge!

MasterClass on Space Exploration


This new MasterClass on Space Exploration by Chris Hadfield keeps popping up in my Facebook feed. It looks incredible for those who are scientifically minded. Learn about true space exploration from someone who lived it.

Impossible things happen. At age nine, Chris Hadfield knew he wanted to go to space. He eventually went there three times, becoming a commander of the International Space Station. In his MasterClass, Chris teaches you what it takes to explore space and what the future holds for humans in the final frontier. Learn about the science of space travel, life as an astronaut, and how flying in space will forever change the way you think about living on Earth.

Going on my very long list of classes to take some day. Learn more.
