In this episode, host Alex Dainis uses articles on chocolate to demonstrate how to approach scientific claims. In this case study, she demonstrates how to interrogate scientific findings and experiments.
Pinky and Petunia discuss light and electron microscopes. They also offer helpful hints on how to use a light microscope. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
The word "theory" is used differently in casual, everyday life than when discussing scientific matters. This episode discusses scientific theory and law. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
Explore the basics of how antibiotics, antivirals, and vaccines work to help the immune system in the fight against pathogens. This episode briefly introduces the lines of defense in the immune system and discusses how vaccines can be important for herd immunity. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
In this episode, host Dianna Cowern races against the clock to complete 20 physics experiments in five minutes. Feel free to try them at home but note that some require adult supervision. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory give tips for presenting the final product of the experiment. In this segment, they offer suggestions for communicating the experiment and results in a way that will captivate an audience’s attention. Part of the “How to Do a Science Fair Project” series.
Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory discuss the importance of variables and design when conducting science fair projects. In this segment, they instruct students to conduct the experiment multiple times, and each trial should repeat in exactly the same manner. Part of the “How to Do a Science Fair Project” series.
Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory give tips on how to come up with a unique idea for a science fair project. In this segment, they encourage students to look around and ask questions about what they see. This can include observations about patterns, shapes, and behaviors. Part of the “How to Do a Science Fair Project” series.
The Lemhi Valley is a sagebrush steppe in Eastern Idaho, along the border with Montana. It is a critical habitat for the pygmy rabbit, and University of Idaho mammalian ecologist Janet Rachlow is gathering data to create maps showing where and when the rabbits spend their time. What they learn about the links between habitat features and habitat use could help inform future decisions involving land management and restoration for these types of environments. Part of the “Science Nation” series.
In this episode, citizens and scientists partner to gather data on many environmental concerns around the world. A group of citizen scientists track air and water pollution at fracking sites in Wyoming and 5 other states. They use simple but science-based techniques developed by the “Bucket Brigade.” Volunteers from Trout Unlimited monitor water quality regularly, generating baseline data that will prove invaluable in the event of future pollution events. Community members connected with professional researchers explore Flint’s drinking water crisis and help other cities test their water quality. In China, citizens use government data and a unique mobile app to report environmental crimes. Part of "The Crowd and the Cloud" series.
Students will learn how to measure length and distance using common tools. Concepts and terminology include metric ruler, meter, centimeter, and kilometer.
Students explore the concept of volume and ways to measure it. Concepts and terminology include liquid, solid, liter, milliliter, cubic centimeter, beaker, and graduated cylinder.
George Vanderbilt pushed the technology envelope when building Biltmore Estate, and his descendants continue to promote technological advancements. Today, the estate undertakes opportunities to help the environment by running a solar farm and biodiesel operation.
This episode discusses the importance of scientific names and why classification can have major changes due to DNA and cell structure evidence. Pinky and Petunia also cover the taxonomy hierarchy of classification. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
In this episode, host Dianna Cowern visits LIGO again and continues her discussion on gravitational waves. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
In this episode, host Dianna Cowern discusses the physics behind vortex rings. She uses some food coloring in a swimming pool to demonstrate the creation of vortices. Part of the "Physics Girl" series.
In this episode, host Alex Dainis takes viewers on a tour of her lab. She points out important equipment and tools and explains their purpose in the conducting scientific experiments.
This episode discusses the scientific method and the importance of using credible sources when conducting research. Other topics covered include control group, constants, independent variable, and dependent variable. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
Demonstrates techniques for using a student microscope to achieve spectacular images. Emphasizes correct lighting procedures and the techniques required for viewing living cells.
In this episode, host Dianna Cowern asks the question, “What happens to an image when bending a spoon from concave to convex?” Part of the “Physics Girl” series.
