Why is it so difficult to complete the cinnamon challenge? How does my smartphone work? Why do I crave comfort food? When I video chat my family, why can’t my dog recognize me? Why do I wake up sweating at night, and then freezing two hours later? If you swallow chewing gum, does it really stay in your digestive track for 7 years?
With all of these burning questions accumulating, YouTube star and science nerd Hank Green is here with the answers and has the science to back it up.
In this interview, Hank probes into these questions that keep you up a night, and how STEM gives us the answers. As a science nerd himself, Hank thinks it’s incredibly important for our younger generations to explore STEM fields for the future of our planet. He is partnering with Emerson, a company celebrating 125 years in STEM-related initiatives. They want to help parents get their kids more involved in and excited about STEM subjects. Hank talks about what STEM fields are, why they are important, and the repercussions if younger generations don’t embrace these fields.
