For a few years new, science writers at NC State have tried to help folks solve some of the mysteries of everyday life. Why are glasses dry when you open the dishwasher, but the plastic cups aren’t? What’s the difference between baking soda and baking powder? Why can you sometimes see the moon during the daytime? How do bees make honey?
We’ve done quite a few of these, and they’re a lot of fun. They also highlight how science and engineering can help us understand the world around us.
But we’re running out of questions, and we’d like your help. If you’ve got questions about some of the mysteries in your daily life, please let us know – you can include them in the comments section below. We can’t promise that we’ll answer all of them. But we’ll certainly answer as many as possible.
We’re also including a list of all the questions we’ve answered so far (see below). Your question may already be in there!
