Chemistry Done Right

20 Oct

Science Magazine held a Dance Your PhD contest, and the winner was a team from Carleton University. I won’t lie, I know little about chemistry, or science in general. Heck, I can’t even do basic multiplication as quick as the average Joe. But come on, this is amazing.

This should be how all theses are presented–through the language of dance.

Here’s the vid!

Holier Than Thou: The Israel Dilemma (+pics)

It does. When you have doubts, look towards Bill Nye the Science Guy. Sangeeta, having a Bachelors in science, has more input on this subject matter. She is a major smarty pants and an awesome journalism buddy.

She Blinded Me With Science!

True, that’s a bit of a biased opinion seeing how I am an unabashed science nerd, but I am still convinced that everyone should find something that interests them in the wide realm of science.

When you were little, don’t you remember all the fun you had figuring out the world around you and asking the question that is the bane of all parents’ existence: why?

If you boil it down to its most basic elements, this is what draws most scientists to their professions: a strong curiosity about the things we encounter on a day to day basis.

Back before science became a big deal, naturalists were the first explorers of the world around them; people who in their spare time observed the world around them and attempted to understand its properties and principles.

Seems simple enough doesn’t it?

Sure, the science experiments we conduct today seem like hopelessly confusing code of terms and equations, but for the most part it’s just a veneer of jargon, and with a little help you too can learn how to crack it! Continue reading
