In honor of back-to-school season, this week’s GeekWire radio show and podcast comes with an educational theme — featuring excerpts from past interviews with technology educators and one very impressive high school student.

Our guests are Ed Lazowska (Bill & Melinda Gates Chair in Computer Science at the University of Washington), Daniil Kulchenko (the 15 year-old entrepreneur who sold his cloud-computing startup earlier this year), and Hanson Hosein (Director of the Master of Communication in Digital Media program at UW).

And in our final segment we give the answer to last week’s Name that Tech Tune Challenge. It was the Proton Pack from Ghostbusters, as many of you guessed. Congrats to our winners, who’ve been notified via email.

Listen to the full show above or directly via this MP3 file.
