Another busy weekend infused with sunshine meant that both Sarah and I felt disinclined to spend precious time glued to our respective laptops to collate the TV Guide. However Sarah has done one half and I’ve done the other, so through willpower and teamwork we have another helping of Science based TV and Radio to share with you…
Sarah’s picks of the week are The Life Scientific with Ewan Birney on Junk DNA and the programme on measurement and precision. Mine have to be the repeat of The Seven Ages of Starlight (excellent) and the Science of DIY explaining how screwdrivers are levers.
Here are three recent videos by Henry Reich. His work is an excellent example of using video to clearly explain scientific concepts. Perfect for a foray into the flipped lesson.
- His first on his Minute Earth channel, compares biological biodiversity and competition with the economic challenges of microbreweries. It’s a nice analogy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Atg-5Nqszxw
The next two are both found on his Minute Physics channel:
- Turning sound into light: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yHDeKFW8j8
