Today, we learn the history of school in the United States! Then, we get study tips straight from science. We take it back to the eighties to learn about a historic prank done by some MIT fraternity brothers at an Ivy League football game. We give you the scoop on why writing down your notes helps you retain the information. A few child prodigies are discussed. Finally, we answer the question: “Why do kids get summers off?” in this episode presented by the Paper & Packaging – How Life Unfolds.
