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.
