Tumble podcasts for children share the stories behind science discovery. Co-hosted by a science journalist and a teacher, the podcasts explore how science actually works as a process. The stories range from the voyage of ocean trash to the tower of a vomiting robot! The podcast “The Mystery of When Brains and Sports Collide” helps students to discover what happens to the brain when someone gets hit in the head playing rough or risky sports. Students also learn how American football players have helped scientists unravel a mystery that could change the way sports are played.
