WorldO!Water

World O! Water is an annual event hosted by the City of Omaha at Lake Wehrspann, a large man-made lake in a dam retained waterway constructed by the Papilion Missouri NRD. This dam site has evolved into its characteristic biome over the years.

AcademyScience.us researches, participates and demonstrates a water themed project every year at this event. This year youth in the science program researched the need for fresh, clean water source at the Olympics. The presentation throughout the year is well received and met the criteria for demonstration at this event

You will find us in the Park east of the open ball field where the fireworks will launch Saturday night, south of the tennis court, under the old maple tree.

Look for our trademark family Picnic meal spread and the feather flags.

‘We will bring out the Design, Build and Launch model compressed air rockets made from common school supplies, but COOL and FUN!

Check out the photo of youth having FUN. Bring the entire family! All Are Welcome!

Amish Uber

Necessity is the Mother of Invention: Amish Uber

An Amish Dad in Michigan has decided to join the rideshare economy, with his horse and buggy. According to WWMT, Tim Hochstedler has started offering taxi rides around his hometown of Colon in his horse-drawn carriage, which he has dubbed the “Amish Uber.” Horse and Buggy Rides are only $5, so this is way cheaper than most Uber rides, but there is a pretty big catch: You will have to flag him down on the street if you want a lift, since he is not using the Uber app.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, the proverb “Necessity is the mother of invention” simply means that, “When the need for something becomes imperative, one is determined to find ways of achieving it.”
