A Trampoline, A Ball and Hipster Glasses?! Life Ain't Easy For A Scientist Named Sue

The Secret Life of Scientists and EngineersThe Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers

Wait, did you hear that? It’s Secret Life Season 3 – bouncing its way back into your life. And SPOILER ALERT: our first scientist of the season has a secret.

This year, we’re not just going to hand you scientists and their secrets wrapped in a tidy bow of instant gratification. Instead, we’ll drop you clues about Secret Lifers and their work, while building towards the premiere video, wherein we reveal the big secret.

So, here goes nothing. Clue #1.

A funny-looking ball on a string, a trampoline and hipster glasses (or are they?). We challenge you to use your deductive reasoning to imagine a world where this video makes any kind of sense – inside a science lab or otherwise. We assure you that it does.

There, there. This will all make sense on Thursday October 11, when we reveal Sue’s big secret. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for more clues.
