Why would you ever need to know how long a fish is? Well, turns out we have a classroom full of fishing experts. You can only keep a fish that is over a certain length. These fish are called keepers. If you kept all the baby fish they would never grow big and lay eggs. Also, if you wanted to make dinner it would be better to just eat one big one rather than 10 little ones. Also, it's just plain against the law.
Leila is the scientist of the week. She came in wondering what would happen if you put dirty pennies in some coke. Here's what we thought:

4. The pennies will float.
5. The pennies will be suspended in the middle.
