One of the biggest challenges facing schools and teachers is getting young people excited about science and technology. Joining us today is Leland Melvin, an astronaut who is the only person to be drafted into the NFL who has actually flown in space.

Melvin is at the National Press Club in Washington to honor the wines of the 2019 Toshiba ExploraVision Awards. The K – 12 awards program encourages student teams to create inventive solutions to the problems of the future both great and small.
