Good Morning everyone and welcome to another edition of Science Sunday. Last week we celebrated Earth Day, which is one of our favorite holidays here at the Connecticut Science Center. So, for this Science Sunday we are actually taking a suggestion from one of our viewers to explore more about plate tectonics. How do we know that our plates on Earth are moving? When was this first discovered? Learn all about that, plus some sweet science you can try at home to explore more about plate tectonics by watching the full Science Sunday segment below.
