Inmates at the Eyman State Prison in Florence, Arizona are getting the chance to learn something most of us don’t know very much about: geology and astronomy.

It’s one of the newest subjects offered through ASU’s Prison Education Program, which started because a group of students learned about the challenges facing inmates and wanted to do something to help.

The Show talked to ASU planetary geology master's student Hannah Bercovici and Grace Carlson, a graduate student in geological sciences, about their motivation.
