‘But Why’ Podcast for Kids

But Why is a podcast let by kids from Vermont Public Radio.  Our students ask some of the best questions and this podcast is dedicated to finding those answers.  Topics that caught my eye include-  Corona Virus for Kids and the Science of Soap, Why Do People Have Nightmares?,  Ice, Ice, Baby, Why is Ice Slippery?, and Are Jellyfish made of Jelly?
