If you couldn't make it to Washington, D.C., you can find instructions to make the same colorful kites and spinning "bunny copters" that we made here. Want more? has a great collection of science and math activities. And, of course, Scientific American's own Bring Science Home offers a new way for kids and their parents to have science fun together each week. Last, please check out our other educational initiatives.
