Getting Psyched about Science

http://cptv.vo.llnwd.net/o2/ypmwebcontent/Catie/Where%20We%20Live%2004-23-2013.mp3

How is science serving us? And how do we keep kids interested in the field? Those are the big questions we’re tackling today on the program with a panel of scientists and educators.

Microbiologist Arturo Casadevall says “all the major problems facing humanity are scientific problems” -- problems like climate change, pandemics, meteors. He says we need good scientists to deal with these problems. But how do we train the next generation of scientists?

Ainissa Ramirez might have some ideas, she’s a self-proclaimed Science Evangelist, former Yale professor and author of Save Our Science: How to Inspire a New Generation of Scientists.

She joins us along with former Connecticut high school science teacher  of the year Kristen Record.
