SciFri Dances, the Moon Mourns the #QueenOfSoul, and a Virtual Reality Check: Twitter Tales for Science Teachers

You can’t believe everything you see in social media, but when something’s popular on Twitter/Facebook/Snapchat, it’s sure to be something you can use to catch students’ attention. The stories that caught our eye this week run the gamut from wonderfully eye-catching to thought-provoking. Warning: SciFri dancing could lead to silly grins all day!

    As a Native Detroiter, on behalf of the City of Detroit, I want to thank NASA Moon for the recognition extended to the beloved “Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.”

    She will be missed, yet her music will live on to the end of time. Thank you again for your acknowledgement.
