On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, nineteen al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four commercial jets and crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Including the first responders (such as firefighters, police officers and paramedics) nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks. As another anniversary approaches, it is time to reflect on the tragedy and remember the fallen.
Here’s a link to my curated 9/11 resources.

Discovery: Science Fair Central
“An important part of learning science is doing science. Science fairs offer students an opportunity to practice science investigation and invention. Whether the science fair is competitive or not, the project may be the first time that students choose their own science topic and practice being a scientist or engineer.” There is a lot of great guidance here, but if you’re specifically looking for topic ideas, jump directly to “Choose a Project Idea” under the “Getting Started” tab.
