Young Science

One thing I noted last summer when the STS-124 shuttle astronauts visited was that the kids asked some great questions. And that’s the theme of a new Boing-Boing column:

Submit your toddler’s science questions!

The child does not have to be your own. Questions do not have to be cute or “Kids Say the Darndest Things-ish” in any way. They do not even have to be current. (Baby boomers, got a query that’s been nagging at you since 1975? I don’t care if the toddler is now in their 30s, send the question!) All I’m looking for are things you can’t answer off the top of your head and don’t feel like researching yourself. Easy stuff!

Do turtles have eyelashes?
