Graduation from any level of school is a culmination of hard work, perseverance, and countless late nights. Life after graduation, however, does not stop nor slow down. The initiation into the real world, the pursuit of worldwide travel adventures, the next step in education – no matter what it is, a new beginning awaits you.

Toys, gadgets, puzzles and gizmos – not quite the lineup of items you think of when it comes to science. However for Ross Kelly, these items are exactly the tools that he uses to teach. It started for the Boston College organic chemistry professor three decades ago, when he purchased a soccer player figurine that was able to “levitate” a ball from a steam of air coming from its head. The science behind the intriguing toy fascinated Kelly so much that he began purchasing more items from offbeat souvenir stores, airport shops and online sites and became determined to use them to inspire curiosity and wonder in others. Since then, he has assembled a collection of over 75 eccentric gizmos and toys, dubbed the “Curiosity Cabinet” collection, that he poses to students to get them to think about an aspect of the world and foster a hands-on approach. We spoke with Kelly about how he started his curiosity cabinet, his goals for putting the collection together, and his thoughts on how people can engage with science.

Whether you already struck gold with the perfect gift or activity, or are still scouring the Internet for an off-beat one, here is our personal list of green Mother’s Day ideas that not only give the gift of love to amazing moms, but also help to contribute to a greener environment that will sustain and foster many more Mother’s Days and memories to come:
During Teacher Appreciation Week from May 4th to May 8th, we honor those educators who devote their time, energy, and passion to make our children’s lives better. Through encouragement and positive reinforcement, they impart knowledge to our youth and inspire kids of all ages to reach for the stars. Teachers make a difference not only in the classroom, but also in the schools and community, all while impacting families from every part of the world.

Whether it’s giving your teacher a unique gift like a MOVA Globe, saying thank you in person, or collaborating with your fellow classmates or parents to throw a special event, we hope you take the time to give thanks to your deserving teacher.
