Ep. 83 The Goonies

If you are looking for a movie with adventure, treasure maps, pirate ships, crazy gadgets, and an organ made out of human bones, then The Goonies is exactly what you are looking for!  We kick off “Spielberg Spring” with this classic about a group of kids who go looking for a fabled treasure stash in order to save their homes from being sold to a real estate developer.  There is plenty of science to talk about in this one, including Data’s zany inventions, large scale booby traps, Rube-Goldberg designs, and how this movie links to Oak Island, one of the most mysterious treasure hunts of all time.
