In this week’s episode, reporter Kara Newhouse speaks with Emily Landis, executive director at the Lancaster Science Factory, an interactive science center. Landis has a master’s degree in forensic anthropology and spent six years at the National Geographic Society, directing their grant-making in research, conservation and exploration.
Some of the things she talks about in this podcast are:
• the year she spent dissecting a human cadaver and what it taught her about interdisciplinary work.
• why her mom once let her skip class to go to the library.
• her vow to keep the number of countries she’s visited higher than her age.
• ways to make STEM learning accessible for kids and adults.
In recommendations, Landis suggests reading “Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World” by Rachel Ignotofsky and listening to the “Radio Lab” podcast. Newhouse recommends listening to “Star Talk Radio.”
