A Nerd’s Celebration

ImageThere is only one thing a nerd loves better than learning–learning for FREE. As an absolute, total nerd myself, I can tell you that learning about this website totally got me excited!!

“A free world-class education for anyone anywhere. The Khan Academy is an organization on a mission. We’re a not-for-profit with the goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education to anyone anywhere.

All of the site’s resources are available to anyone. It doesn’t matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy’s materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.” – from Khan Academy website>About Us

Wow, you should see all of the topics they have to choose from. I now know what I can do with any “extra” time that I have. haha, extra time….funny.
