Science Fair Project season

my favorite time of year... Science Fair time!

Yesterday a kid wanted to research fish traps. The question for his project = which fish traps work better: store bought or man made? His mom wanted me to find information on how the Indians fished; the boy was no help-- he wouldn't even think about changing the topic.... We found some information in a book about how to survive the wilderness.

Of course he needed more books immediately; couldn't wait for anything to be ordered.

Had a science fair mom today looking for books about light bulbs. Specifically how much light different types of incandescent bulbs give out - sorry - no books about light bulbs! And unfortunately Consumer Reports is focusing on compact fluorescents these days.
