In Pennsylvania we learn how video games are being used to teach the next generation of scientists and engineers the STEM skills they'll need in their future careers. Then we head to Edwards Air Force Base in California to celebrate the first ever National Astronaut Day.
We check out the World Science Fair where the latest cutting edge technology is on display with everything from virtual reality to bikes that create electricity as you pedal. Then we head to Wisconsin for the championship round of the national Rube Goldberg Machine Contest, where students must build machines that complete a simple task in the most complicated way possible.
We learn the science behind the conservation and care of wild animals as students at the Wild Bird Fund in New York rescue, rehab, and release injured wild birds. And we meet an eleven year old girl from Texas who is using technology to run a nation-wide business and lend a helping hand to honeybees.
