Ever wonder something — such as the temperature at which water boils — and start flipping through an old science textbook? Probably not. Most people would turn to the Internet. A Google search for “water boiling temperature” renders 13.7 million results — including charts on boiling temperature in relation to air pressure and YouTube videos on how to boil water in a vacuum chamber. Such access to information also is credited for a growing interest in home schooling. “For almost anything you want to learn, you can find a video on YouTube,” said Lisa Wagner, who home-schools her two daughters and two sons in their Dryden home. “You just have to be careful. There can be a lot of inaccurate information.”
