The Week Ahead for South Florida: Free National Parks & NasaTV

I hope you are enjoying the great weather we have been having the last week!  We are looking forward to a week of wathcing NasaTV and maybe even heading out to a National Park for free admission.

My Pick of the Week

Live Space Station

Live Space Station

Ever wish you could drive up the coast and watch a SpaceX take off, but your not sure you could last 4 hours in the car with the kids?  NasaTV has you covered!  You can watch everything from blast off to video of the astronauts living on the space station.  This morning they were showing how the SpaceX rocket is disengaged from the space station.  Sure beats reality TV!

Want to learn Piano?

There is an App for that!
pianomarvelI am a geek, I know! I have been obsessed with all things educational & technological! So what about Piano Lessons?  Yup, There’s an app for that too! Piano Marvel is a completely online piano course that uses a midi interface with your piano to give you instant feedback on what you know!  I have been using it to brush up on my extremely old skills and to supplement my child’s lessons!   I am LOVING IT!  I also negotiated a Coupon Code for you try it for free!  If you buy a subscription you will get a discount too!  You won’t believe what you get for about a quarter of the price of piano lessons!
