Budding Scientists

Questions that have taken our science intersession class off on tangents:
  • How do birds fly?
  • Do penguins have hollow bones?
  • Why do some birds run fast?
  • Can an ostrich kill a lion with a kick?

  • How is that potential energy?
  • What does gravity have to do with energy?
  • How much gravity is there on Jupiter?

  • How can those weigh the same?
  • Why is that balanced?
And my favorite, I don't get it! Followed by much effort to understand how something works.
All of this is from a one hour period this morning.
