Leak-Proof Bag - Cool Science Experiment

Dear Friend of RESET,

While schools are closed, RESET will be posting STEM activities on #RESETuesday that can be done at home using common household items. This week we will be posting a video featuring Steve Spangler. This lesson is a fun activity using a sharpened pencil and a water-filled plastic bag to demonstrate the unexpected behavior of plastic polymers.
Click below to access the video:

Deep Sea Squid Communicate by Glowing Like E-Readers

From NPR (@NPR)

Humboldt squid are known for being aggressive, cannibalistic and, according to new research, real chatterboxes. Scientists found the squid communicate using about 30 different bioluminescent patterns, and use them in sentence-like sequences. trib.al/l6PevsO

By making their bodies glow, Humboldt squid illuminate the changing patterns on their bodies to communicate in the depths of the Pacific Ocean.
