There’s some pretty impressive brain power being flexed in the Fountain Valley home of Nicola and Chad Weiss.
It’s a good bet theirs is the only home on the block with a backyard shed converted into a science lab. True, it may have started as a cool place from which to launch dry ice bombs and a space where the family didn’t have to share the pungent side effects of some of 15-year-old Sean Weiss’ experiments with methane extraction from feces.
Now, all five of the Weiss kids share the space for experiments and projects.
Next week, Nicola Weiss and the children will be going to San Francisco to make presentations at the prestigious American Geophysical Union’s Fall Meeting, which begins Monday. It’s the largest international gathering of earth and space scientists, with more than 25,000 scientists, educators and students scheduled to attend.
