This week, Stephanie spoke to some MSU students who are a part of the Game Design Minor. They are also a part of Spartasoft, a club which connects students with professionals and gives them space to develop their skills.

From coding to marketing and character design, MSU students are creating games. Each of these students talk about their involvement in the program, what games they are working on, and how this experience benefits their future career.  

On Sci-Files, Chelsie and Danny talk to Sara Ayoub about her research in the measurement of star explosion. Stars evolve and some heavy stars explode and die. Sara is working on a tool to help measure the nuclear fission that occurs within stars, so we can better understand and explain what astronauts see in the universe.
