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
