It’s that time of year again – science fair projects, stomach viruses, field trips and chaos! Apologies for the sound being off, but I wanted to get this out to you! This episode, I talk about our adventures finishing up the school assignments before the holiday break and the fun the kids had singing at various locations. I also talk about what I think is the biggest space news story of the year – Europa’s showers of water.

As promised, here’s the pic and link of the Mythbusters Science Fair Book – here’s #2, but we have both editions.
