There’s a whole world of everyday stuff out there that begs the question, “How does that work”? Or, “Why does that work” or  “What caused that to happen?

On How Things Work, teachers, students or just interested folks can find resources, “how to do” projects, science fair topics and other valuable information about the subject of their choice.

From, “Is dog saliva really antiseptic?” to, “Does getting older affect your memory?” we have the answer to a lot of questions– or we help you to find it yourself.
