Even strawberries have DNA

Since the beginning of the year, pre-scientists across the U.S. have been engaging with scientists and expanding their understanding of the world around them. We asked the pre-scientists what they learned about science from their pen pals during the year. Ranging from technical to humorous, we enjoyed this glimpse into the world of science from their point of view and hope you do, as well!

I learned that brain cells are the ones that help us make our reflexes.

I didn’t know how some fish in some of Mexico’s rivers can survive in the toxic waters.
