Chemistry can be fun
We were never that bothered by chemistry at school - the lab coat being such a tricky look to pull off and all - but maybe if they'd explained it like this we'd have paid more attention...
Directed by Hungry Man's Roderick Fenske this spot was commissioned by agency Media Consulta and producer Till Drier for the Marie Curie programme which provides funding and logistical help to students who study science. Apparently, Fenske's father was a scientist who impressed upon the young lad that science was never boring if you just talked about it in the right terms. And so he created a humorous metaphor that was not only educational but reminded people about how much fun science could be. Thus was “Chemical Party/Electricity” born.
Can't... see... on GNU/Linux with Firefox... oof... [tears some hair out; rolls eyes in opposite directions] yar... rrrrff...
I want to be this video.
It didn't work for me with FF (Mac OSX 10.4.11) either.
Chemistry CAN be fun!
Mac users, watch the video on the European Commission's website: http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/teens/chemical_party_video.htm
Have to agree, kind of wanted to skip Chemistry but this makes me wish perhaps I had been more attentive!! Oh well, perhaps in another life!
the problem is that usually the lessons spend too little space to the theory and concepts to practical reality ... lessons become uninteresting.
I'm also using firefox and can't watch the video. Shame though, Judging by some of the comments, it could have possibly changed my opinion about chemistry.
