Hey Sci Slugs! The magazine will be out in 1 more day! For now, take a look at this amazing science fact. Air does not circulate around the earth in a straight pattern. Since the Earth rotates, air is deflected toward the right in the Northern Hemisphere and toward the left in the Southern Hemisphere. The deflection causes curved paths and is called […]

This type of light-oriented growth is called phototropism. Source: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/05/130528105946.htm
