Dr. Sarah Davies poses (via Skype) with Mrs. Nora Thompson’s 6th grade class at William Penn Elementary in Salt Late City, Utah. Dr. Davies talked with the students about everything from coral spawning to fluorescent proteins. Her favorite question from the class was “Why does everything like to eat coral larvae?” Her response: “They’re full of lipids, so they’re like the french fries of the ocean.” Sounds about right.
