Dear Snktlk (= Deb Hunt?)

The snacks on your site raise the enthusiasm of many Dutch science
teachers, who like to send their students to your site. However, at the
age up to 13/14, the English language is still a threshold for Dutch
students. I am asked by some teachers if the website for physics
education support,, for which I am project leader,
would be able to provide them with Dutch translations of your snacks.

This question consists of a translation question (answer is yes, snacks
can be translated by volunteer teachers), a hosting question (answer is
yes, snacks can be hosted) and a copyright question. For the latter, I
have to ask you, the people of Exploratorium snacks, on what conditions
their work could be translated and presented at

I hope to hear from you how I can reach you for discussing this question.
Thank you in advance.

With best regards,
Maarten Pieters

The target group has been upper secondary level so far, but we will
gradually broaden the group to younger students.
