It is time for a very special episode with a personal hero of mine and likely so many young people who grew up watching her be a curiosity communicator on Mythbusters - Kari Byron. We talk heavily about the National STEM Challenge which she organized as part of EXPLR with her business partner Jenny Buccos as well as collaboration with the Department of Education as well as Chef Andrew Zimmern. We get into the details of the festival including who can participate and the windows for submitting projects. Kari and I also discussed EXPLR's other initiatives, her personal journey in STEM and how art is closer to science than you think!
