As we countdown to a busy holiday season, I want to wish all of you a warm and wonderful holiday, surrounded by family and friends. We will be taking a family ski trip with my brother’s family,
so not only will my holiday be white (pretty unusual for a San Diego gal!).. but it will also be warm!
This last week was a busy one for Surfnetkids.com, with a huge new batch of celebrity dress up and makeover games posted, and few new Christmas games as well.

Louis Pasteur Printable (** for premium members only)
Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) was one of the greatest biologists of the nineteenth century. He is credited with the discovery of the germ theory, using heat to kill germs in food products (a process now called pasteurization ), debunking the long held theory of spontaneous generation, and the development of early vaccines to prevent the spread of diseases.
Access Excellence: Louis Pasteur (1822-1895)
Part of the Resource Center from the National Health Museum, this one-page Louis Pasteur biography includes a link to a page describing how Pasteur debunked spontaneous generation. “For example, a seventeenth century recipe for the spontaneous production of mice required placing sweaty underwear and husks of wheat in an open-mouthed jar, then waiting for about 21 days, during which time it was alleged that the sweat from the underwear would penetrate the husks of wheat, changing them into mice.”

How Stuff Works: Pasteur’s Experiment
In their article on the scientific method, How Stuff Works uses one of Pasteur’s famous spontaneous generation experiment as an example. It describes step-by-step how Pasteur Pasteur proved that germs could only come from other germs, and could not be generated spontaneously. “Pasteur’s experiment has all of the hallmarks of modern scientific inquiry. It begins with a hypothesis and it tests that hypothesis using a carefully controlled experiment. This same process — based on the same logical sequence of steps — has been employed by scientists for nearly 150 years.”
