The Best Of Our Knowledge #1294

Jul 9, 2015

If someone tells you they are a science teacher…think about it, that really doesn’t narrow it down a whole lot. Earth science, chemistry, biology, astronomy, physics…these are all taught by science teachers. But it takes a special person to teach ocean science when there isn’t an ocean for hundreds of miles.

Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear the story of an ocean science teacher in a land locked state.

Then we’ll stay with science and head into the clinical lab where different labs are returning different results on the same samples and, really, nothing good can come of that. I’ll have a conversation about the need for harmonization of laboratory methods and results.

And then it’s an academic minute about the attack of the killer sponges because that’s just a fun thing to say.
