Science Run Amok

 Every so often we get the itch to do science experiments in our house.  I like ones that aren't very messy.  Most of them work out okay, but for some reason, the making crystals on a string thing never works for us.  I think I need someone to teach me the secret to getting crystals to grow before I try it again with the kids, because the disappointment is killing them.  On the plus side, I'm able to explain that failed experiments is a huge part of being a scientist.  Like Thomas Edison said, "I have not failed.  I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."
