But Why?: Why Do Snowboards Look Like Skateboards?

We’re marking the winter solstice with an episode all about snow!

Why do snowboards look like skateboards? We get an answer from Burton Snowboards. How is snow made? Why is snow white? Why are all snowflakes different? We’ll hear from Jon Nelson, author of “The Story of Snow: The Science of Winter’s Wonder.” Also why does snow melt? And where is the deepest snow?

 

But Why is a show led by you, kids!

You ask the questions and we find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world.
