Another blogMay 31, 2010
As some of you know, I’ve been interested in educational science songs for many years. When Wendy Silk asked me to participate in her new pilot project on Undergraduate Biology Education — Songs for Teaching (UBEST), I was happy to say yes.
A major goal of the project is to build a network of teachers, students, musicians, and others who believe that music can be used to engage people who might otherwise be intimidated or bored by scientific content. In her quiet way, Wendy is a natural networker and has already talked to many people about this project. I have been slow to follow suit thus far, but I’d like to mention that we have a new blog devoted to science songs: http://singaboutscience.blogspot.com. If you share my interest in this topic, or if you just can’t get enough of my blogosphere blather, please check it out.
