Seeker and TRAX from PRX

This podcast is a deep-dive into one incredible invention, entrepreneurial pursuit, or discovery per episode and the young person behind it.

Did you know that the trampoline was invented by a 16-year-old? That popsicles, snowmobiles, and even the Braille language were also invented by young people? In this podcast we’re talking to innovative kids, tweens, and teens who run their own businesses, made a new discovery, or invented something new using science. For season two, our host Stephanie Castillo, a science communicator who is dedicated to inspiring the next generation of scientists through representation, is exited to interview and be inspired by the talented innovators!
