    Tumble Double Pack: Our Award-Winning Episodes!

    Tumble has won a big award for two episodes: “The Cave of the Underground Astronauts” and “The Science of Whiskers.” You’ll hear them both in this twin pack of awesome stories of science discovery. 

    Tumble is the 2019 Gold Award winner of the AAAS Kavli Science Journalism Award, in the category of Children’s Science News. It’s an international prize that “recognizes distinguished science reporting for a general audience.”  

    “The originality and creativity that went into these two pieces is remarkable,” said Christine Dell’Amore, a *National Geographic *editor. “These podcasts taught kids a ton about science in a fun and engaging way.” 

    Lindsay will be traveling to Seattle in February to receive the awards, and give a free public talk about how to make science podcasts, for both kids and adults! If you’re in the Seattle area, come to her “Meet a Scientist” talk on February 15 at 12 pm. She’d love to meet you! 

    The talk is part of AAAS Family Days - a weekend filled with science activities at the Seattle Sheraton Grand Hotel. It’s free to attend on February 15 and 16. More information and registration link here.

Fantastic!

I’ve listened to this for quite a long time , so I decided to write a review. This podcast really covers a lot of science, but also keeps the listener entertained which is incredible, as a lit of kids find science boring. 🇨🇦🥳 Happy New Year of 2020 everyone!

I love your stories! They are so interesting but I often get bored listening to the same stories so I think you should make more stories per month. Thank you.
