It was the closest contest to date. This was truly a team effort, and we are so grateful for each minute that you spent voting for Girlstart. This $10,000 donation from Reliant Gives will provide critical support to ensure Girlstart sustains and expands our programs in Houston. We can’t wait to update you on our work as we grow in this community.

Vector Toy

In this demonstration, use your favorite walking toy to observe the forces causing the toy to move! Observe how the forces acting on the toy change as it gets closer to falling off the edge, and see how these changes affect the toy.

Walking Rainbow

Everyone loves a good rainbow! In this experiment, we made a rainbow out of water, paper towels, and just three colors. You will have to wait about 48 hours to see the full rainbow, but beautiful things take time!
