Boston's Museum of Science

This fun and interesting video makes me want to go to Boston for a daytrip so I can go to the fabulous Museum of Science! [3:28].


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Looks like a lot of fun. I’ve always made a point oto go to the Ontario Science Center ( anytime I get back East to Toronto

    They didn’t even mention the world’s largest Van de Graaff generator! They do regular “lightning” shows with it. The MoS is pretty awesome, and after the Larry Summers women-in-science brouhaha a few years ago they had a couple of days where women got in for free. That’s the last time I went; I’ve since moved away from that fair city.

    This video was really exciting to watch! I really think going to museums like this one really make people enjoy science instead of the boring stuff like trying to memorize the periodic table for a test they have that week. This way people can really experience science first hand and plus the gift shop just puts the icing on the cake!
