Last fall Megan Amram released Science…For Her!, a science textbook written as though by a women’s magazine writer who knows little about science.
If you couldn’t be bothered to read the whole thing, but still want to dive in, Amram has a solution. She has partnered with Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls on a web series, Experimenting with Megan Amram. (Poehler’s website has a great deal of science, technology, engineering and mathematics – STEM – content worth exploring, not just this series.)
The show premiered this week, and will run weekly. The first episode involves building a potato clock and an interview with Dr. Beverly McKeon, who runs the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories at the California Institute of Technology. Do remember that this is a comedy science show (this is on Amy Poehler’s website after all). The idea seems to be the morning show equivalent of a science segment.
