Young Scientists
If, by chance, you are a young scientist in the making and a fan of The Highly Scientific Notebooks of Phineas L. MacGuire (Thanks, Cheerios!), hurry to GoPhineas.com: The Science Site for Kids. That’s where you’ll find science news just for kids, as well as experiments, projects, book reviews and lots of other cool stuff. The universe is out there just waiting to be explored, after all, so why not get going?
