SciTech Now Episode 225

We go behind the scenes at the famed (and sustainable) Biltmore Estate; Dr. Rudolph Tanzi discusses changing our gene activity; new technology is changing our communication capabilities; aircraft simulation is employed to encourage critical thinking among high school students; and the University of Washington School of Oceanography is expanding our knowledge of the ocean floor.
