The Loh Down on Science - Special Pandemic Edition

Wed Apr 22, 2020
Various times
Middle School and up
Free

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 episodes can be listened to on the website, as well as on iTunes, Stitcher and Spotify.

The Loh Down on Science: Special Pandemic Edition is appropriate for middle school and up.
