In Grapevine, Arkansas students spent more than two hours on the school bus every day for years. Local scientist Billy Hudson saw that time as an opportunity to create a “magic” school bus with internet and computers where students could spend time learning. Now, more than a decade later, Hudson and his wife have taken the program to Vanderbilt University. The couple created Aspirnaut, a six-week program at the medical center that teaches rural and diverse students about STEM subjects.
