Free Mystery Science Access for 1 Yr

Mystery Science is offering access to free science curriculum for a year, worth $99, covering 2nd-5th grade. 

I'm not familiar with the program myself, but it might be a nice adjunct or alternative teaching approach for those who are looking for something different and engaging.

If you enter 5 email addresses to invite other "teachers", you get instant access to the free year, otherwise you have to wait until later in August.
