AUSTIN, Tx — There are thousands of podcasts out there, introducing us to new worlds of comedy, fitness, mental health and more. CBS Austin anchor, Allison Miller, shows us how one podcast called 'Tumble' is making a difference in how they teach science to kids with a funny and fresh take on the topic.
The Puzzle of Flipping Cats, The Case of the Invisibility Cloak, and The Tale of the Bacteria Farmer are all episodes of Tumble, odd subjects that seem to stick with kids. The funny and educational audio files started in Austin with Sara Robberson Lentz and host-couple Lindsay Patterson and Marshall Escamilla. The couple want to tell the process of science discovery.
The Trinity Second Grade Brownie Troop in Austin got their chance to be a part of an episode, launching a weather balloon at St. Edwards University. Lindsay and Marshall hope Tumble keeps kids curious and entertained as they learn about the world around them.
On Saturday, August 18th, Lindsay and Marshal will be presenting The Surprising Story of Sea Stars: Sticky Feet. Sign up here: https://www.sciencemill.org/tumble-sea-star-event
On Sunday, August 19th, they'll host: Tumble Back-to-School Science Splash Jam with guest scientists and musicians: http://scottishritetheater.org/show/tumble-2018/
