 31. Writing A Children's Book, The Importance of Parents' Engagement, Education Consulting | Stephanie Ryan | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:57

Hey cool listeners! We are back with another interview, and this time I am joined by Stephanie Ryan, the author of Let’s Learn about Chemistry. This book "makes it easy to introduce children to the basic fundamentals that form the foundation of chemistry — no science degree required. If you’ve ever wanted to start young readers off on a lifelong love of STEM, Let’s Learn About Chemistry is a great first step."   Stephanie and I discuss a variety of things in this episode of the podcast. First, what does writing a children's book even entail? I learned that there is something called a developmental editor who is crucial to this process. Stephaine will explain in this episode what the role is for this specific editor.   Second, how important it is for parents to be involved in their child's learning process and how her book may get not just get the kid interested in science. We discuss how science class is taught as a subject that just lists off facts but never talks about the process of figuring out the "how" and "why". Stephanie thinks that that way of teaching science is changing, and more kids are learning the importance behind what they are learning.    Finally, we discuss what Stephanie does on a day to day basis as an education consultant. She explains the critical thinking required to develop "phenomenons" that teachers/schools can utilize to better teach their students about science.    Find out more about Stephanie and her book from her website: www.letslearnaboutscience.com/ Interested in purchasing Let's Learn About Chemistry: ITASCA books (Use to support a small business) Amazon (FYI, This link is Stephanie's Amazon affiliate link)   --more-- Follow/Support The Podcast: Website: thatscoolnews.com/ Review The Podcast: thatscoolnews.com/review Join the Community: thatscoolnews.com/community Instagram: @ThatsCoolNews Email for the giveaway: adam@thatscoolnews.com Listen to the news episodes by going to thatscoolnews.com/news And check out Interview episodes by going to thatscoolnews.com/interviews Recording Equipment: Below is the equipment I use to record the podcast.

 29. Science Communications, Studying Plant Biology, Importance of Mentors | Notes By Niba | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 56:48

Hey cool listeners! We are back with another interview, and this time I am joined by Niba from Notes By Niba. She is building a brand (YouTube & Instagram) that centers around creating & sharing notes related to plant science in cosmetics and skincare.    We talk about her background, and what led her down the road of Science Communications. What exactly is Science Communications? Niba answers that with the basic understanding that it is at its core good storytelling. This leads her into discussing her start with Instagram and YouTube video, which transitions to an insightful message about creating things that give you energy and not follow what other people are doing just because it seems like the thing to do.    We get into what led her to Plant Biology, why she loves it and did she always have this love towards plants or did it grow with time. Niba dropped plenty of plant knowledge on me that blew my mind. You'll have to listen to the episode to find out what that was.    I enjoyed this conversation, and there is so much more that we get into The important role of mentors, new perspectives in science, genetic engineering just to name a few. I think you will enjoy this episode!

 26. Physics Educator on YouTube, System Engineer Consulting, Working at a Nuclear Fusion Reactor | Rebecca Fitch | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:00:17

Hey to all you cool listeners! In this episode, I bring to you Rebecca Fitch, aka Bexy, a YouTuber who is using her channel to educate viewers about the world of Physics. Her whole goal is to take Physics and STEM learning topics that some would find daunting and explain them in a way that is easy to digest and understand.   This hour-long conversation started with getting to know Bexy and understanding how she ended up majoring in physics. She has an incredible story explaining how she switched from a business track to physics. She put in a lot of hard work to make that switch even work, and I think most people would have given up if put in that position.  This transitions into more learning/teaching topics: the teaching environment nowadays, the daunting nature of majoring in STEM, learning about the schooling system across the pond, etc.  We then discuss what Bexy does in the industry. She is a System Engineer Consultant, and she explains what is system engineering, and what does it entail for someone with a Physics degree. Additionally, because I can't help it, I asked about what type of projects she has consulted on, and what were her favorites. That lead to us discussing her over year-long work on a Nuclear Fusion Reactor! Wow! We discussed so much more during this chat, and I am looking forward to everyone listening to the episode because you'll get a lot of value out of it.  Find Bexy here: Instagram: @ScienceWithBexy  YouTube Channel: Science With Bexy --more-- Follow/Support The Podcast: Website: thatscoolnews.com/ Rate The Podcast: thatscoolnews.com/review Join the Community: thatscoolnews.com/community Instagram: @ThatsCoolNews Email for giveaway: adam@thatscoolnews.com or thatscoolnews@gmail.com Listen to the news episodes by going to thatscoolnews.com/news And check out Interview episodes by going to thatscoolnews.com/interviews Recording Equipment: Below is the equipment I use to record the podcast, I should note, as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
