Science Pop Culture: Science With Tom Gets Its Eyes Checked; Textbook Gets Cosmo-ified

The latest science rap gestated by Tom McFadden is out.  Reworking a rap by Macklemore, the students at Nueva School teach us about cataracts.

There’s another science mashup coming your way later this year.  It’s a textbook written by comedy writer (Parks and Recreation) Megan Amram.  Science…For Her! comes out November 4, and stands a chance of provoking the same kind of reaction as the initial video for the European Commission’s campaign – ‘Science, it’s a girl thing‘.

But while the Commission managed to stick its foot in its mouth with that video, Amram’s tongue seems firmly in her cheek over a science textbook that might have been written by the editors of Cosmopolitan.  Even so, I expect some will not quite understand.

Science…For Her! is available for preorder.
