Grant Imahara answers a question from moderator Chris Pfahler, STEMsmart project manager. Imahara said part of his love for science, which led to his interest in robotics and, ultimately, his job on "MythBusters," was his interest in how things worked. He said he spent a lot of time as a child taking things apart and putting them back together.

NORTH PORT — Kari Byron and Grant Imahara, two co-hosts of the Discovery Channel hit show “MythBusters,” spoke to a “sold-out” crowd at the North Port Performing Arts Center Saturday.
The two, who came out on stage to loud cheers from the 1,000 in the audience, talked about their favorite experiments, the smelliest myths they’ve tried to bust, favorite guns to fire, doing things that appear illegal and finding jobs they love.
