You Observed…Everything

25:19 minutes

Main_FinalSegmentOne month ago, Science Friday’s Science Club issued a challenge. The club asked listeners to observe everything until they noticed something that interested them, to observe that one interesting thing methodically while keeping a record of what they noticed, and then to share the observations with the club. Science Club founding members Ariel Zych and Charles Bergquist say that the listener submissions covered the gamut, from violin physics to the turning of autumn leaves.
