What is WhyizZat all about?

WhyizZat is a fun site to learn about science and ask science questions. My name is Jeff, and I have been interested in science since I was in about the 4th grade. I like all kinds of science subjects, including how our bodies work, what makes up the world around us, what the stars and planets are like. I'm not a scientist myself, but I've learned a lot about science and what I don't know I can usually find out.
