A Moment of Science

What do bicycles, footballs, and space shuttles have in common? Can you really learn while you are asleep? These—and literally thousands of other questions about the world we live in—are answered in A Moment of Science, Indiana University’s two-minute daily audio podcast that provides the scientific story behind some of life’s most perplexing mysteries. Recent stories have investigated the origins of a cat’s kneading behavior, the idea of whether what we eat can change our DNA, and why our eyes get puffy when we cry. The engaging topics are sure to generate interest and spark discussion among middle and high school students; more likely, they’ll inspire students to submit a science question to be answered in a future episode!
