You can learn a lot in 60 seconds. Especially about science. Scientific American produces some amazing “60 Second Science” podcasts that are definitely worth exploring, subscribing to, and sharing with students. With titles such as “Microbes Make Some People Smell Delicious to Mosquitos” and “It’s Plain the Rain Ups Chili Peppers’ Pain,” not only are they highly informative, they’re great discussion starters, too.
Access the complete list of 60 Second science podcasts here. And check out all of Scientific American’s podcasts here. The full list includes 60 Second health, 60 Second space, 60 Second technology, and more!
My own students are putting the finishing touches on their versions of these podcasts for our astronomy unit, so stay tuned, I’ll be sharing those soon.
