How To Buid A Fort
Not that adults (and especially not children) need any help with the timeless task of manifesting our inner-fort via stuff lying around the house, but the New York Times Magazine put out this article, because, now apparently it's in vogue.
help the world with some citizen science!
The Zooniverse is the world’s largest and most popular platform for people-powered research. This research is made possible by volunteers — more than a million people around the world who come together to assist professional researchers. Our goal is to enable research that would not be possible, or practical, otherwise. Zooniverse research results in new discoveries, datasets useful to the wider research community, and many publications. Anyone can be a researcher. You don’t need any specialized background, training, or expertise to participate. Zooniverse make it easy for anyone to contribute to real academic research, on their own computer, at their own convenience.

Virtual Reality Research Guide
Virtual Reality technology has been enabling immersive learning environments for longer than you may realize, and the technology continues to really improve. While the educational potential that VR unlocks may not be the first thing that comes to mind, consider this: you can travel to and study places that are super far away (from the Louvre Museum in Paris, to distant stars and galaxies), not to mention places that don't even exist any more (from ancient Mesopotamia, to Pompeii before the volcano); you can also see, dissect, and study things that are otherwise invisible (think cellular level).
The potential is seemingly endless. So don't act like you're too cool for school and just game your life away. Dig in, explore, and enjoy! And obviously, feel free to ask your librarian any questions. We're all in this together:)
There's alsways...Virtual Escape Rooms!
