The National Science Quiz

Have you ever stayed awake at night wondering about life’s deep questions?

*What makes popcorn pop? Does grass grow at night? Is an empty roller
coaster faster than a full one? Why are some bruises blue and not red?* *Does
the volume of soft drink change when the bubbles escape?*
