[ Spotlighting | Minutes from ME | Puzzler | Thisday | BioPoint ]


volume four, issue six

June and July, 1998

This Summer, the world's sporting attention will turn to France. Prepare for the World Cup championships by stepping into the Soccer Spotlight. The new Spotlight features an assortment of resources for exploring the science of soccer. Soccer is one of the most popular youth sports in the United States today. Find out why.

The "BioPoint" students are finishing their year with a truly memorable experience. They share images and comments from their fetal pig dissection. The complexity of the pig's internal structure was quite a challenge. Take a look into their lab, but be warned. The images are real.

Spend a minute with ME and investigate maps. How do you explain longitude and latitude to someone for the first time? ME shares her ideas.

Get ready! Get set! MATCH! The Puzzler this month challenges you to find the two identical images in a field of athletic balls.

Finally, get ready for the summer holidays by using Thisday to locate resources for the June and July holidays.

"inQuiry Almanack" will return in August with new features for the new school year. Have a great summer vacation!
