        1. Thank you! My daughter’s hs chem teacher used to use this sort of puzzle to help them review and I used to try to figure them out. Also I work in a path lab and we always have puzzle contests during lab week. I’m a helpdesk tech but I always love figuring them out.

    Alright – I’m offering up three sets of science stickers – one to Tabby Lavalamp who first posted about the Ferris/Ferrous Wheel, and one each to Lorax and Robert B who answered at almost exactly the same time with the “Ferrous” spelling. If you would like me to send you stickers, you three can contact me at [email protected] with the address to which you’d like me to send the stickers, or I’ll contact you via the email with which you commented. Thanks for playing!

        It’s a natural log cabin.
