Summary:Military intelligence illustrates how professors from University of Maryland University College travel to over 125 U.S. military bases around the world to teach college course for enlisted people. Laughing all the way to the lab visits Prof. Robert R. Provine as he conducts research on why people laugh. Growing smarter discusses urban sprawl around Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Dental records visits the Dr. Samuel D. Harris National Museum of Dentistry at the University of Maryland at Baltimore. Sound advice illustrates how Towson State University students are trained to treat speech and hearing disorders. Ahead of the class examines the Lockheed Martin graduate fellows program, in which school teachers spend their summers as paid researchers.

The process was streamlined and businesses have increased their investment in the state.
