SciTech Now Episode 36

In this episode of SciTech Now, we take a look at one school in Washington state pioneering the “flip classroom,” where lecturing is done at home, and problem solving is done in the classroom; we learn about a tenacious vine called the “air potato” posing difficult challenges to wildlife managers who are using small critters to fight back; Hari Sreenivasan sits down with the CEO of Spire, Peter Platzer, who is trying to revolutionize weather forecasting one satellite at a time; we meet the “visionaries” behind the startup One Drop who have developed an innovative new way to help people cope with diabetes and we sit down with Mark Siddall of the American Museum of Natural History who gives us an up-close look at some of the world’s most venomous creatures.

One Drop

My name’s Jeff Dachis, and the company’s name is One Drop, and we are a mobile diabetes management platform. We allow people to log their food, their insulin, their activity and their glucose all in one simple, easy to use app, and then to share all that information with the community of other people like them, so that we can all learn how to navigate our diabetes together.
