This year, BigBrother(13) is doing an experiment to see what kind of insulation works the best*. Sweety helps with the experimenting part and I help with the getting-all-of-the-information-on-a-posterboard-and-making-it-look-nice part. I'll be glad when the project is over. Every year I say that it is my last year to help with the stinking projects and I keep getting sucked into them. Maybe I will go on vacation this time next year.
We did find some fun uses for the leftover insulation.
*Feel free to steal this experiment and use it for your own middle-schooler. I bought the damn idea off of the internet after BB's science teacher shot down 2 or 3 project ideas that BB had submitted. Consider it my gift to you.
