Professor Gribbly has cracked the code, and this cartoon tells the story. No child wants to sit in a classroom and read a textbook, then try to remmber those facts for long enough to pass a test. Sadly, this has been the norm in most schools for decades. But, give them a toy that is designed to teach a scientific principal and this bit of learning will last a lifetime. One of Man's greatest achievments was inspired by a toy. That's right, if it weren't for the Wright brother's Father giving them a fying toy, we might not be flying today. Click the video and see their story.
