Greetings Science Snoopers! While many forces come to play in our daily lives, friction (also known as the BIG RUB) shows up in many unusual places. Sometimes it helps, sometimes it hurts, but no matter which way you cut it, friction is all around you! Your mission is to investigate one way that friction works either for or against you as you go about your day, and then write about it. Let's begin by investigating the facts.
