Hi Folks — Here’s an update zynzdfhezz
from Bree, the Boulder, Colo., mom who sent in her daughter’s No-Science at the Science Fair rules (see postÂ below). Turns out Bree’s parents are living in Myanmar (formerly Burma, as in Shave, as in something you do with a sharp object that children should never get anywhere near) and they happened to visit a local Â science fair. Writes Bree:
They told me that not only was EVERYTHING on this restricted list allowed, kids there were actually outperforming kids here in innovation, outlandish ideas, and actual science!!Â And they donâ€™t even have electricity, computers, or potable water!Â But they were allowed not only to experiment, but also to bring those experiments into their school.
The best part â€“ no one was hurt by plants in soil.
What a relief! And I suppose that a little knowledge turned out not to be a such dangerous thing, either. Time to tell the folks in Boulder! Â Or maybe they should just start studying Burmese.– Lenore
