What happens when you cross science and superheroes? You get the “Scientific League of Superheroes”—a collection of USF PhD students who don costumes to teach elementary school students science, technology, engineering and math, both in person and in comic book-like videos. This week's rebroadcast of University Beat on WUSF TV introduces you to the League and shows you how young people are responding to their unusual teaching methods.

On the radio

When it comes to knowledge, the “Scientific League of Superheroes” is mightier than the Avengers and more uncanny than the X-Men. This week’s rebroadcast of WUSF's University Beat from earlier this summer introduces you to a trio of USF doctoral students who’ve assumed the superhero identities of MegaByte, Sublimation and Super Conductor to teach science, technology, engineering and math to elementary school students.

Political cartoons on display at the Tampa Museum of Art
Political cartoons were the talk show hosts and websites of yesterday. Now, a USF faculty member has amassed quite a collection of cartoons that, with the help of the USF Library, is being displayed at the Tampa Museum of Art. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 explores the exhibit and finds out how this art has developed over the years, while seemingly always having an effect on political discourse.

Put together 16 high-resolution stereoscopic 3-D monitors and you get a display two to three times better than any I-MAX movie theater screen. With a device like that, you can look at objects smaller than a human hair or examine minute details of an ancient artifact. That’s the promise of the USF Advanced Visualization Center. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes you there.

University Beat wraps up a two-part look at the work some USF professors are doing on how marketers sell us the products we use and consume. Groucho Marx once said, “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?” One USF researcher is putting that concept to the test, as he studies “sensory marketing”—how advertisers use our senses to sometimes “trick” us into buying things we might not necessarily want. Find out more on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.

For the next two weeks, University Beat on WUSF Public Media is looking at the work some USF professors are doing on how marketers sell us the products we use and consume. We all recognize misleading advertising when we see it, but what’s happening in our brains when something appears to be fishy and we can’t figure out what’s right? This week on University Beat, we talk to a marketing professor who is working with neuroscience researchers to analyze how people respond to advertising.
