The Big Bang: Crash Course Big History #1

In which John Green, Hank Green, and Emily Graslie teach you about, well, everything. Big History is the history of everything. We’re going to start with the Big Bang, take you right through all of history (recorded and otherwise), and even talk a little bit about the future. It is going to be awesome. In the awe-inspiring sense of the word awesome. In this episode, we walk you through the start of everything: The Big Bang. We’ll look at how the universe unfolded at its very beginning, and how everything in the universe that we know today came into being. So that’s kind of a big deal, right?

For more information, visit www.bighistoryproject.com

So… this is a big announcement!

The Big History Project is what I would have loved to experience in my high school classroom. It contextualizes… everything. Instead of putting up arbitrary barriers around subjects, it encourages participants to approach history - history of science, math, the earth, our solar system, civilization - in the only way we can begin to make sense of it all, which is through relational context. 

And I’m really, really proud to announce that I’ve got a few minor guest hosting roles throughout the series! It’s a big honor to be asked to participate and serve as Scientific Claims Tester. Plus I got to hang out in the Crash Course studio like whaaaaaaaat

This is gonna be good. Life! The universe! Everything!

The History of Atomic Chemistry: Crash Course Chemistry #37

How did we get here? Well, in terms of Atomic Chemistry, Hank takes us on a tour of the folks that were part of the long chain of other folks who helped us get to these deeper understandings of the world. From Leucippus to Heisenberg to you - yes, YOU - the story of Atomic Chemistry is all wibbly-wobbly… and amazing.

Rosalind Franklin, reconstructionist.

Want to know more about her? Yeah you do.

Hank talked a little bit about Ms Franklin in this episode of Crash Course Biology, but we are also planning a whole Great Minds episode about her for SciShow!

The Nucleus: Crash Course Chemistry #1

Hank does his best to convince us that chemistry is not torture, but is instead the amazing and beautiful science of stuff. Chemistry can tell us how three tiny particles - the proton, neutron and electron - come together in trillions of combinations to form … everything. In this inaugural episode of Crash Course Chemistry, we start out with one of the biggest ideas in chemistry ever - stuff is made from atoms. More specifically, we learn about the properties of the nucleus and why they are important to defining what an atom actually is.

If you like SciShow and you like Hank, maybe you will like this other channel he participates in: last year he taught biology and ecology - this year, he’s tackling chemistry.  First episode went up on Monday - check it out!

Hank Green! + Crash Course! 

Hey fellow nerds and NerdFighters!  Today was really exciting for us in the UMZM, because Hank Green of the extremely popular YouTube channels Vlogbrothers, Crash Course, SciShow, and a variety of other Internet- and real-world famous educational endeavors visited our collection!  For his next episode in Crash Course Hank will be discussing the vertebrate skeleton, so what better place to do off-site filming than our museum?!  Here are some photos I snapped during the shoot.  I’m so excited to post the video next week so, as always, stay tuned!
