How Science Works

How does science work? Kind of like a pinball machine. Check it out! The Academy’s Charles Griswold takes us through the process of science with an exciting new spider discovery.

    This is a fantastic overview of a great conceptual flow chart.  I really like the explanation with spider discovery.  It makes me wonder if you (or someone) could do a simliar bit albeit a bit longer with climate change?  What I really appreciate about this flow chart and explanation is that it gets to the rigor behind the scientific endeavor which I believe isn't well understood in the general public.

    This is great!  Thank you!  I have forwarded it to my colleagues and teachers I work with.  This is one of our main basic messages in the education and
    outreach we do at PRBO Conservation Science and this video from you is a great summary and
    visual aide to that message.

    Its a nice little video, that conveys some of the excitement and the process of scientific discovery and consensus. Good job, however I hate to be a pedant, but you misspelt the word museum… twice!
    Regards,

    Passionate example on scientific discovery, uncertainty, getting past established paradigms creativity and motivating communication within a traditional science arena.  An equation yet unclaimed is connecting this science to community feedback, relevance and analysis outside of the scientific community

    This is so great. I have been using the model for a few years now in my methods classes and now these two videos really add to that discussion and clarify the model even more! Thank you for such great work in showing what science is really like!
