What happens when a student doesn't have a safe place to call home? And what can we do to support those students when they're at school? High-schooler Ryan Bass tackles this problem with his family. Together, they've fostered almost a dozen youths in Northeast Ohio. We'll learn more about how foster care works from Lucy - a policy expert - and Jamole - a former foster youth. This podcast is brought to you by Battelle, the largest independent nonprofit research and development institute in the world.

Why does a student in Ohio care about ocean health? It's a long story - one that starts in Mexico, takes a pit stop in Aruba, and touches down in Hawaii before returning back home to the midwest. What happens to plastic in the ocean? What is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and how did it form? What is coral, why is it bleaching, and what can we do about it? Learn all that and more from Abby Malinowski and Dr. Andrea Grottoli. This podcast is brought to you by Battelle, the world's largest private, nonprofit research and development institute.

Battelle has been around for almost 100 years, but how did it grow from one building in 1929 into the world's largest private nonprofit research and development institute? And how did it get involved in STEM education? And what even is STEM education? And why is filling up your apartment with sulfur fumes an important step towards inventing the Xerox copier? Listen for answers to those questions and more - before we meet the students. ----- If you're curious, check out the entire interview with Chester Carlson at the Xerox website!
