When is the last time you went to the Michigan Science Center? With live stage shows, a 4D theater, a Planetarium, 250+ hands-on exhibits, lab activities, special exhibits and more, there’s more than you can see and do in a week. In fact, there’s something new to discover at MiSci every month and an amazing Woman named Cassie Byrd is behind all of those great discoveries. Listen to the podcast and you will hear why she is a WCSX “Woman Who Rocks”.
Cassie Byrd has a background in clinical laboratory science, beginning with her work as a molecular biologist for the United States Air Force (USAF). Yup, you read that right. A molecular biologist. Cassie now spends her time as Michigan Science Center’s Chief Learning Officer and teaching young girls about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Cassie is one of the most interesting people I have ever spoken with and is an inspiration to all women.
In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb. This week we talk about a Michigan woman who almost went to jail over the way she disciplined her daughter.
Cyndy and I also discuss reality television and the problems it creates for some participants with substance abuse. A recent article on the “Real Housewives” series, had me shaking my head.
Finally, we talk about how some residents in an Ohio city were abusing their benefits at strip clubs. Yes, it really happened.
Turning Point is ALWAYS here to help!!!!!!
