Episode 74: The Cloud, Chapter 13 and 14

Hi All,

Just a reminder that we are recording a novella that Mr. Chris and I wrote. The story, about kids solving a mystery using their technology skills,  has twenty-five chapters.  
A few weeks ago, we brought you Chapter 12, where The Cloud found extra resource links, pictures and videos in the digital folders for their science project. They began to hypothesize who could have access to their folders. They made a plan to quietly ask around the classroom to figure out if someone was trying to help their chances of winning.

Was it you? Did you add to their files? Did you know that you can? Simply share a picture of the weather that is happening in your neck of the woods at We'll place them on the the class website at to help out The Cloud with their science fair data!
