Season 2014 Episode 41 | 26m 47s | Video has closed captioning.

STEM education is becoming an increasingly important part of children’s lives. In some countries concepts like programming and coding are being taught alongside traditional subjects like reading, writing, and mathematics. We take a look at how some companies are using toy robots and video games to teach this skill. Also, we discuss Governor Cuomo's return to Albany on our Reporters Roundtable.
