        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | Tom Yang

        Meet food technologist Tom Yang in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” Tom designs and makes food rations for the U.S. Army. During Desert Storm, he was faced with the challenge of designing a version of one of the soldiers’ favorite ration items—M&M’s—that could resist melting in the extreme heat of the desert. When he’s not feeding the troops, Tom loves to eat up the applause of Karaoke audiences while crooning his favorite Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry songs. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
