Happy New Year! Did you stay up late on December 31 to watch the ball drop and officially welcome in 2022? We of course had to have our own New Year’s celebration- with a science twist. Today, we are doing the Science Sunday version of a ball drop, and we encourage you to follow along at home.
There is so much more Science Sunday to explore. Check out the full gallery of segments on our blog: https://ctsciencecenter.org/blog_categories/science-sunday/.
