[S2E10] The Science Project
Steve Spangler relaxes in his backyard with science tricks and inventions you can create outdoors. He exposes the secret to opening a car door with the power of your brain. And he reveals how to balance a ball on a spray of water.
IF: I had another decision at that point, too, that I was offered a chance to play in a band in a cruise ship going between New York and Livermore and, at the same time, the Chemistry Department asked me to do a little research project in the summer, see. There again, I made the wrong decision and, and went with the Chemistry Department.
MG: Ivan Frantz did not end up on cruise ships. He chose, instead, to devote his life to studying heart disease; specifically, to understanding the role of cholesterol and blood lipids in heart attacks. He took his research seriously; Robert Frantz says that his father raised his five boys according to the best practices of nutritional science.
RF: The different state hospitals where this project was conducted were scattered around Minnesota and so my father wouldÔøΩ He actually had a, a, a small airplane and was a, was a private pilot and would just puddle jump around from one little place to another, uh, trouble shooting these issues. It consumed his life and he, he, he, sort of, rarely took vacation and was always working on something and it was just that what he wanted to do, really.
In all of the mountains of data collected half a century ago in the name of studying cholesterol, there should be an answer to the linoleic acid question. Ramsden first comes across something called The Sydney Diet Heart Study, the Australian counterpart to the big heart studies that were going on in the United States at the same time. He needs the raw data, but the study's main authors are long dead. One of the research assistants on the project, though, is still alive. Ramsden tracks him down. I think you know what happens next.
RF: I think my father would be very pleased because that's science, right? You have a hypothesis, you try to test it, maybe it's dogma breaking, maybe it's not. And if things go a different direction; then, you've got to try to explain that. My father was a humble man, you know, he would not be quick to take a lot of credit for things.
That's what I found so beautiful in Robert Frantz's act, the busy professional, a doctor at one of the most prestigious medical centers in the world, drove 90 miles each way four times to spend hours alone in a cluttered basement looking for a box of tapes that would end up proving that his father was wrong. And why did he do it? Because he understood that in pushing the science forward in defiance of ego and preconception, he was upholding the principles by which his father had lived. There is something impossibly beautiful about that act. In my grief, it has given me solace.
Alfred (Abraham Clinkscales) sells a student his own stolen calculator and is taken to the principal's office, where he tries to play it off as racism and is just warned to not do it again. While working on a science project with his school crush, Earn removes a thread hanging from his shirt, with Devin watching him. Earn is later mocked by two students who claim his shirt is fake, dubbing it "FEBE". He later learns that a student that was absent earlier that day, Johnny, will soon arrive to confirm who has the fake shirt. He then sees as the two students mock Devin too for his shirt, while also being told that whoever has the fake shirt will be roasted by the entire school.
In this penultimate episode of the series, we hear from 3 guests in 3 continents, who share 1 goal: to elevate the role of women in science. Gabriela Ivan, Stephanie Okeyo and Ammad Haider work in the fields of robotics, STEAM education and international development, guided by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, and campaigning for equality, inclusivity and access to science education.

Fionn developed a method for the removal of microplastics from water back in 2019 and he left top scientists in awe at several science fairs as well as being named the Grand Prize Global Winner of the Google Science Fair 2019.
Selina prepares to visit a school science fair and she asks Dan to rewrite her speech to sound more presidential. Later, Dan approaches Amy about an "accidental dick move" he made - he plagiarized a speech he wrote for Danny Chung when he rewrote Selina's science fair speech. Amy tries to get a hold of Mike to warn Selina, but as his phone is dead, Selina gives the speech unaware.
Later, Selina tours the science fair, making small talk with the children. Jonah arrives with a phone call from Ben since Mike's been unreachable: Furlong's spreading the news of Hughes quitting all over town, so Hughes isn't going to leave the ticket because he doesn't want it to look like he's being pushed out. Ben is enraged: "Now our spineless, flip-floppy f***-bag, is staying!"
Mice were perfused with 10mL of HBSS prior to isolation of brains to remove contaminating peripheral blood. Brains of mice were processed through mesh similar to spleens, spun down and resuspended in 30% percoll in RPMI. Samples were then under laid with a 70% percoll in RPMI and spun at 500 g for 30 minutes at 18C with no deceleration brake. Lymphocytes were collected from the 30/70 interface. Single cell suspensions from spleen were treated with 0.84% NH4Cl to lyse red blood cells. Single cell suspensions were stimulated with 1uM of peptide or 5 μg/ml anti-CD3 (145-2C11) and incubated with Golgi plug (BD Bioscience) and recombinant human IL-2 for 4.5 hours at 37C. Samples were treated with FC receptor blocking antibody and stained for CD8 and IFNγ (BD Bioscience clone XMG1.2). Samples were collected on a LSRII (BD Bioscience) and analyzed with FlowJo software (Tree Star Inc.).
0.47 My PhD research that I started working on last July is on planetary science, which means small rocky objects like the planets in our solar system, but actually our solar system contains more than just eight planets

Earlier this season, Dr. Duncan revealed that Dyad Group became involved with Project Leda once the military decided that proving cloning is possible had too many distasteful moral implications. Marian reveals that Duncan had been lied to. Instead of being shut down, the project was compartmentalized into two autonomous operations. While Dyad was in charge of carrying female clones to term, a military faction carried the males.
The middle school is having a science fair, and Tommy has an idea to create a machine that can sort socks by color, so that you never end up wearing odd socks. After asking his dad for a little advice, Stu becomes a little too helpful and takes over. Stu takes over so much that Tommy has to admit that the project is no longer his design at the prize giving event. Meanwhile Lil has a crush on a boy named Nicholas, who asks to work with her on her Science project.
While working on The Wizard of Oz, Will also helped Henry with his science project, which involved making a family tree and getting a DNA test. When the results came back, Will asked if Oliver was sure he was 100% Irish, because the test came back half clear his mom and the other half Greek. 041b061a72
