During the day we did homeschool.  M worked on building a detector for spilled water.  We found that with salty water, the wires could be much farther apart and still complete the circuit through the water, so salty water is a better conductor than fresh water.  When we ran the water through our Brita pitcher, the circuit didn’t work at all, so we proved electronically that our water filter works:

Salton City is a town that just won’t give up.  They maintain puddles of grass in the desert and call in a golf course.  They even get mowed from time to time:
