Physics Girl Dianna Cowern has created a YouTube channel about physics, astronomy, and other science-related topics. The show features engaging DIY investigations, unusual and cutting-edge research, explanations about phenomena related to space and the universe, and interviews with science experts. Examples of everyday physics include “Why do mirrors flip horizontally (but not vertically)?” “Which way will a spool roll?” and “Can explosions work in space?” In addition to viewing the everyday physics videos, students can listen to an interview with an MIT professor about “How the Hippies Saved Physics,” or they can try their skill at making a cloud in their mouth, calculating Pi with darts, and more.
For the first time, in 2018 the events of the winter Olympic Games will be broadcast and streamed live in all time zones by NBCOlympics.com. The videos will also be available on the NBC Sports app for Android and iOS phones.
Teachers can show their students that science, exploration, and conservation are alive outside of their textbooks by joining virtual field trips with National Geographic Explorers. Several times a month, students can participate in Explorer Classroom and connect with National Geographic explorers in Google Hangout events.
Hosted by The School of The New York Times, the NYC Summer Academy gives intellectually curious high school students the opportunity to live and learn in New York City while studying topics in journalism, media, technology, arts, culture, sports, fashion, business, science, and more.
