This past week on PBS channels nationwide, Hillary was featured on Episode 29 of the PBS television series Sci Tech Now. This episode featured a segment on teaching science through storytelling. A crew from the TV show came to the Story Collider show (where Hillary told a story) in February at Littlefield in Brooklyn to document the event. Missed the show on TV?
