The Loh Down on Science - Special Pandemic Edition
The Loh Down on Science: Special Pandemic Edition explores the science and history of pandemics. Each week, fascinating new three-minute modules are reported by science writers from the Loh Down on Science "Hive."
Subjects include: global crises' unexpected "silver linings" (i.e. technological innovations), what Isaac Newton did during HIS 1600's college quarantine, the science of soap, COVID-19's surprising impacts on climate change, and Folding@home, a cool new project seeking to model a coronavirus cure with the help of our home computers (it worked for Ebola!).
The Loh Down on Science: Special Pandemic Edition is appropriate for middle school and up.
