We all use the internet daily, for work and for fun. Did you know that there are tiny wires as thin as strands of hair lining ocean floors to ensure that happens? Almost as impressive, a new slow-motion video captured what the speed of light looks like. And when it comes to the future of food, what will our protein sources look like? That and more in this week’s Tech News 4 Kids newsletter! Join our classes to learn more about the latest technologies — coding, artificial intelligence, and more.

We all know about the elusive ‘cloud’ that stores all of our valuable information and data like our photos and texts, but big companies are looking to make the ocean a far more viable source. There are currently already tiny, hair-thin cables lining oceans, but what’s next? And what does this mean for the future of internet browsing and file sharing? Find out by reading this article here!
We all know that the speed of light is, well, pretty fast. So fast that it’s incomprehensible as to how to see it. Luckily, some scientists have built a camera that would capture just how fast the speed of light is! Learn all about what these scientists did to catch this on film, and take a look at this amazing slow motion video here!
