Joanne Manaster(@sciencegoddess) joins us today for a short discussion about inspiring our youth in science. Joanne is an former model turned science professor. She has spent her career in science outreach.We talk about:
- getting kids interested in science is more simple than we think
- science really is fun
- Gummy bears make good laboratory dummies
- We establish that liquid nitrogen is the greatest thing ever
- What happens to a gummy bear if he gets blown out an airlock in space
If you're a graduate student with a great sense of humor at the University of Illinois, you should pop in to see her and help her torture gummy bears. You know you want to.
