Listen and Learn: Making an Audio Course in Science for Kids

How do you make an audio-based course to teach science topics to kids? Podcast creator, teacher, and musician Marshall Escamilla explains. Marshall is a co-creator of the highly rated Tumble Science Podcast for Kids. He drew on his podcasting experience and his years in the classroom to develop a “podcourse” for Himalaya Learning, focused on exploring the living things inside kids’ homes. In this conversation, he talks about the goals of the audio course, tips on better remote learning, free music resources for digital creators, and the response to COVID19 in his current home of Barcelona, Spain.
