LSS 62: Science in the Streets

One doesn’t have to go far to find the strong scientific roots and influences that run through Ithaca, with many different groups bringing science-outreach to as many people as possible in various unique ways.

In this show Esther Racoosin visits the 2019 National Science Olympiad Competition, that took place at Cornell University on Saturday, June 1st.  She speaks with Cornell alumnus and longtime Science Olympiad volunteer Bill Wellnitz about why the event is so unique.  She also speaks with team coaches, parents and students who participated in the event.

This year’s Ithaca Festival had the theme Full STEAM Ahead — a play on words with the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. The festival included a “Discovery Tent” with STEAM-themed activities for children, sponsored by local groups. Patricia Waldron stopped by the tent to talk with exhibitors and kids.  

Additionally, Master Beekeeper David Hopkins joins LSS to provide us with important information about bees as the swarm season gets underway.

Finally, Candice Limper sheds light on the Ithaca Generator with an interview with Béline Bergamote, who describes what all they have to offer and some fun things that can be done in their facilities.
