Science Show & Tell

Science is everywhere, from your coffee cup to your computer, from your car to your sunglasses. In every object, there’s a story — about physics, chemistry, biology or other science. For the curious mind, these everyday items can inspire wonder, passion and endless questions about how the world works. For the researchers and technicians in these audio slideshows, those questions paved a unique path to science and, ultimately, to the MagLab.
