curious? just ask!

Have you heard the old expression “Curiosity killed the cat”? Sometimes people repeat this saying to stop others from asking a lot of questions. At Highlights, we prefer the saying “Curiosity is our superpower.” That’s what climate scientist Clara Ma says in “What Makes a Good Scientist?” (pages 16–17). Clara believes that asking questions is the key to learning about everything. Even as a 12-year-old, Clara believed this—and convinced NASA to name one of its Mars-roving robots Curiosity. The superpower of curiosity is in us all. When we use it, we become our best self. So go ahead—raise your hand in class if you have a question. Plan a family trip to a museum, a park, or an event. Talk with someone you know who has an interesting job. Read a book about…

the view from left field

“Grace, you’re on second base. Meghan, you’re on third.” Kylie’s softball coach called out each Comet’s position for today’s game. Their star pitcher was out of town on a family trip, so someone else would be pitching. It has to be me, thought Kylie. I’ve practiced every day this week! She crossed her f ingers as their coach continued. “Catcher—Samantha. Pitcher— Jasmine.” Kylie slumped onto the bench. There goes my chance. Please, please don’t say lef t f ield! “Left f ield—Kylie.” Kylie sighed. She was always in left f ield. “A few of you are playing new positions today. Just give it your best,” said Coach. I’m not playing a new position, Kylie thought as she began the long walk to left field, staring at the dirt on her cleats. Left field was so far from the…

bugged!

Sophia Spencer is buggy for bugs. She thinks insects are fascinating and loves to learn all about them. She hopes to become an entomologist someday and study bugs for a living. Unfortunately, she was bullied so much about her interest that she almost let go of her dreams. Kids at school teased her, called her weird, and even squashed bugs she showed them. She felt sad and began to wonder if it wasweird to like insects. Her mom wrote to an entomologists’ organization to ask if someone there could encourage Sophia. Hundredsof professional bug lovers replied with kind, supportive messages! Their responses showed Sophia that there are many people who share her interest. “It felt good to have so many people support me, and it was cool to see other girls and grown-ups…

if mirrors are glass, why can’t we see through them?

When light hits clear glass, most of the light passes all the way through. But a typical household mirror isn’t just clear glass or plastic. It has a special coating on the back of it. That coating is usually a thin layer of silver or aluminum that’s shiny and smooth. It bounces light back to you in much the same way that a butter knife, polished plate, or other smooth, shiny surface does. As you look in a mirror, a lot is happening! Light in the environment around you scatters off your face, goes through the glass, hits the metallic layer behind it, reflects off it, comes back out the front of the glass, and goes to your eyes. It’s a good thing that happens so fast. Otherwise, imagine how long dressing-room…
