And that was the student who was chosen to read their story or feed the goldfish or go to recess first? Well, I still used popsicle sticks in my high school classroom.

Collection highlights include Claude Monet’s Water Lilies, Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, and Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, along with more recent works by Andy Warhol, Elizabeth Murray, Cindy Sherman, and many others.

Aegirocassis - a 480m-year-old marine animal This extinct marine animal lived 480 million years ago during the early Ordovician - an ancient geological period. An aegirocassis fossil was discovered in the Fezouata formation in Morocco, along with other animals typical of this period. The aegirocassis’ closest relative is the famous predator, anomalocaris, which had a round mouth and strange tentacle-like limbs. The mouth of aegirocassis was capable of a dramatic transformation, forming a strange mesh densely covered with hairs. Scientists think this made the animal the oldest large filter feeder, hundreds of millions of years before whales and large sharks, which catch their prey by filtering it from vast quantities of seawater.
