S'cool Tool: Seriously Amazing

Nov 14, 2012

Free! SERIOUSLY AMAZING presented by The Smithsonian is a collection of thought-provoking questions that provide a portal into the many scientific, artistic, historical, and cultural artifacts scattered throughout the organization's museums and research buildings. Here's a sample question: What has given us water from Mars and daggers from India? Natural history buffs may quickly offer up meteorites (the correct answer) but everyone else is presented the option to learn more about meteorites through the National Museum of Natural History once the answer is revealed. The weird, witty, and off-kilter questions are a great way to virtually explore the Smithsonian's resources, or drum up excitement for the ever-classic Washington D.C. field trip!
