053: Amazing Kids Doing Amazing Things

Kids can do amazing things. And if you need proof of that, look no further than this episode of The Show About Science! First up is kid inventor Allie Weber, the host of the YouTube channel Tech-nic-Allie Speaking. After that is the story of Sophia Spencer, who inspired the hashtag #BugsR4Girls and co-authored a research paper for Annals of the Entomological Society of America. Finally, Nate chats with Olivia Van Ledtje (better known as LivBit), who hosts The Kidlit Show on Pinna and is an Ambassador for The Gills Club, an organization promoting girls in science through inquiry-based experiences meant to grow enthusiasm and activism for sharks and ocean life.
