  26. Tyler DeWitt: Hey science teachers -- make it fun [26]

Be sure to watch the...
  28. Jack Andraka: A promising test for pancreatic cancer ... from a teenager [28]
    • Over 85 percent of all pancreatic cancers are diagnosed late, when someone has less than two percent chance of survival. How could this be?

    • Charles Leadbeater went looking for radical new forms of education -- and found them in the slums of Rio and Kibera, where some of the world's poorest kids are finding transformative new ways to learn.
