We’ve got a cool new series from PBS star Nate Ball, host of the kids science shows Design Squad and Design Squad Nation. His new Alien in my Pocket series is geared to kids in grades 1 through 5 and includes an adventure with humorous illustrations and incorporating a science experiment. Great for Common Core! We’ve got videos that show how to do the initial experiments. You might want to pass them along in your e-newsletters for educators and parents.
