In the coming weeks, hundreds of Invent the Future Challenge students will showcase their solutions to the question: what will you make to protect life on this planet?

When I was a kid, Earth Day was the one time a year that my school focused on the environment, tasking us with making posters about turning off lights and turning off the water while brushing our teeth (never mind the reams of paper we used in the making of these posters). Other than that, I took fo...

Good for kids when they #stayathome.
What age is appropriate for Japan day? I have a 2 year old wondering if the activities are too advance for her to enjoy.
Learn about the country of Oman at KID Museum this weekend (1/13) from 10 - 5 pm: Tons of families activities indoor for the cold weather!
I made this graphic with an image from the webernets and it's doing super well and that makes me proud.
Hi there friends! I’m a student in a UX Design workshop through Springboard, and am doing a STEM-related capstone project. Specifically, I am looking to interview 3 people about their experience teaching children and teens coding.��The results of the whole project will go to help CodeCombat further improve their curriculum, so your time will definitely be a community service! Would you be willing to help me out by volunteering to be interviewed over Skype, Google Hangouts, or FaceTime for around 20 minutes? You can reach out to me at [email protected]. Thanks so much, and I look forward to being in touch!
