Galileo Galilei Was Born 446 Years Ago Today!

Elisha and I were looking at The Learning Calendar to see if anything interesting happened on this day in history. We discovered that today is Galileo Galilei’s Birthday. Elisha figured out that he was born 446 years ago. Galileo was an Italian astronomer and physicist.  You can read more about Galileo Galilei in this wiki article that we discovered.

Learners TV

I come across many things in my searches around the Internet.

Sometimes I save interesting things to put together into longer posts or put up on my Homeschool4Free pages.

I haven’t quite figured out where this one will go yet, but it is a really awesome resource that I thought some of you would definitely be interested in. I wanted to put it somewhere (how about a simple blog post?) so it didn’t get misplaced.

Learners TV is a collection of on-line lectures (whole courses in fact) on a variety of different topics (including – Physics, Chemistry, Nursing, History, etc). They have many more resources than just the videos (like lecture notes, sample exams, and animations). Out of interest I watched a couple of the lectures and enjoyed the glimpse into the university classroom. I invite you to check out the resources on this website.
