Episode 75: The Cloud, Chapter 15

 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 13 and 14, where Val questioned Melvin, hoping to find out who was putting the extra files in their project. The Cloud came to the assumption that Mr. Brisbane was helping them.

Wait, or 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!
