Museum Air, not just the art, is great for you too, But How?

That’s right, there’s actually been studies shown that museum air can improve our health while also preserving the art. Almost as fascinating, it’s been discovered that a lobster’s underbelly is just as tough as industrial rubber. On the shores of those beaches, a 26-year-old artist uses gravity and local rocks to create gorgeous sculptures. That and more in this week’s Tech News 4 Kids newsletter! Join our classes to learn all about these amazing technologies — artificial intelligence, coding, and more.

What can we learn from these findings? Find out here!
