Migration of Monarchs

MMMMMMM Science:
Migration
Monarchs
Mexico

Guest Scientist Jesus and his apprentice Maria Fernandez
share knowledge of the Monarchs in Mexico, and the way many people had to collaborate across language, culture, and opinion to contribute their observations of "tagged" Monarchs, to discover, and thereby, map, the path of Monarch Migration.
Young scientists study a World Map of migratory animals, contemplating the purposes migration serves.

A butterfly ready to fly!

So wonderful to have NYSEC Leader Ann Klaeysen join our projects.

Readers study, as their butterflies rest.

Eggs-cellent Egg-quinox Eggs-periment!

Dear Young Ethical Scientists,

We are balancing eggs this week!  Start right away!
Wake up on Monday March 20th, the first day of Spring
for the Spring Equinox's Famous Perfect Balancing Moment:
at six-twenty-nine a.m.

Take notes!
How many eggs did you manage to get standing and for how long?
And try again in the eve, and the next day -- all week long if you can! as many times as your age!

We'll share our RESEARCH about Egg-Balancing.
Send an email to EthicsForChildren@NYSEC.org
with your RESULTS and we'll tally up the evidence of many efforts!


QUEST: DO EGGS BALANCE ON THE EQUINOX: the day when night and day are equal.
DO EGGS BALANCE ON OTHER DAYS TOO?

Science & Ethics #1

The coolest knowledge:
OUR BRAIN CHANGES as we learn!!!!

Ethical Explorers at NYSEC created brain-y caps starring:
  * the inner primitive brain:  the Limbic Brain that turns off and on our higher thinking powers and helps us in survival-mode!
  * the investigative thinker: the slow-to-grow Prefrontal-Cortex !
  * the "how-and-where-are-you?" center of motion:  the Parietal Band -- no, not parental!
  * the inner voices, musical-mind and word learner:  the Temporal Band
        -- [remember our new word? PARADOX, thanks to young-brain Gabriel!]
  * the gymnast-of-sight, flipping everything upside down and backwards:  the Occipital Lobe
