A Little Bit of Sun

Take a look at the importance of wearing sunscreen. Why do we wear it? What is the different between sunscreen and sunblock? And what does that high SPF number mean anyways? Plus, we explore how nanotechnology is getting involved!

It turns out that we are nanosensors - our noses actually sense molecules - things close to a billionth of a meter in size!

Mr. O’s “O Wow Moments” help you to become an scientist at home with hands-on, minds-on experiments and demos! Watch Mr. O every Saturday morning during the 7 a.m. news on Houston's KPRC Local 2 to see a new science demo you can try at home. Share your experiments with us on facebook and Instragram!
