The B&N Podcast

Aug 15, 2018

If you're a parent who has ever had to think about limiting what we've come to call "screen time" with your child, you have an ally in the scientist and inventor Temple Grandin.  She's the author of 12 books on animal behavior and on autism, including the national bestsellers Thinking in Pictures and Animals in Translation.   She lectures to parents and teachers on her experiences as a scientist with Autism, and she was recently named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people of the year.  She joined us on this episode to the podcast to talk about her new book Calling All Minds:  How to Think and Create Like an Inventor, and why she's determined to reach out to a new generation of kids and encourage them to make, experiment, and "tinker" with their own inventions.
