Star Wars Death Star Electronics Lab (Review)

When Raileigh was four years old, she discovered Star Wars.  She fell hard for the franchise from that very first moment.  It has been really exciting to see her love of Star Wars grow as each new movie is released.  It really is a phenomenal time to be a Star Wars fan.

With the influx of the new movie releases, a plethora of Star Wars merchandise has flooded the marketplace.  Amongst all of this new merchandise, we have discovered some true gems.  One of those gems is the Death Star Electronics Lab from Uncle Milton.

Skittles Science Experiment

Halloween has come and gone, but I am constantly reminded of the holiday thanks to multiple bowls overflowing with candy sitting in my kitchen.  I feel the need for a disclaimer- I bought absolutely none of it.  Apparently, our neighbors were overly generous and filled my daughter’s bucket to the brim with a variety of sweet treats.  Their kindness has left us with more candy than we could possibly ever eat.

This seems to be the story every year when Halloween is over, so I have become adept at finding creative ways to use our candy.  I often send a large portion to work with my husband and we like to create new recipes that incorporate our favorite candy.  However, my favorite thing to do with Halloween candy is experiment.

How to Track the International Space Station

To say that Raileigh is fascinated with outer space is truly an understatement.  She has always enjoyed stargazing and learning about the planets, but in recent years this interest has flourished.  She spends countless hours reading about new discoveries, watching live talks with astronauts, and researching our vast galaxy.

One of Raileigh’s favorite things to do is track the International Space Station.  In case you are not familiar with the ISS, it is an artificial satellite orbiting the Earth.  The purpose of this space station is to serve as an international laboratory within the space environment.  The first portions of the ISS launched from Russia in 1998 and it has been continually manned since late 2000.  The International Space Station is a result of the joint efforts of Japan, Canada, the Russian Federation, the United States, and eleven member states of the European Space Agency.
