This week on Greater Than STEM, we have our first student interview. We talk to Abby, a student from Northeast Ohio who is a self-proclaimed “ocean-hugger.”
What is an ocean-hugger? How does that passion grow in a student from Ohio (a state with rather limited access to oceans)?
Listen for answers to those questions and more on Episode 1 – Ocean Pollution.

About the podcast
Greater Than STEM is a new podcast that tells the story of one student solving one problem. We learn why it matters to them, why it should matter to us, and what we can all do to help. With some help from an expert in the field, we tackle topics like ocean pollution, foster care, and food insecurity in about 20 minutes. STEM students and professionals agree: to solve real-world problems, it takes more than good grades in four subjects. Tune in to our first four episodes the first Monday of every month.
