Caught on Camera: The Fastest Thing in the Universe

Happy Monday marvellous educators!

May begins this week. It is a month of change and in the Northern Hemisphere, the transition to summer starts. Aside from May flowers, there are some cool facts about this “a-may-zing” month!

🌸 The phrase "April Showers bring May Flowers" comes from a poem from the 1500s by Thomas Tusser.

🌸 We didn’t call this month May until the Middle Ages were on their way out, around the 15th Century AD. Up until then, the Latin word Maius was still used.

🌸 May is a good month to be the president of the United States. Interestingly, no U.S. president has ever died in May.

Riding on Sunshine!
(Grades 1-5)

The dream began almost 70 years ago with a tiny, toylike creation called the “Sunmobile.” Although it was nothing more than a 15-inch model of a 1955 Corvette with 8 solar cells on the hood, the model worked, and the concept of a solar vehicle was born. Nearly 70 years later, a mass-produced solar car has yet to hit the market anywhere in the world. But that may be about to change.
