Science on TV

December 30, 2008 at 12:12 pm

This is a continuation of last weeks article on alternative ways to study science.  Television can also offer a fun way to study broader topics.  Most programs don’t get very specific, but some programs do a really good job of overviewing a topic.  Some channels that are great for this are:

  • Discovery
  • Animal Planet
  • PBS
  • The History Channel
  • The Science Channel
  • National Geographic

For an event like Ecology you might want to tape the Planet Earth marathon on Discovery this Sunday night.

You will certainly want to watch shows related to your events.  It’s probably also best to seperate shows that are entertaining with shows that have real science conent.  Shows like Ice Road Truckers, Dirty Jobs, etc. are very entertaining, but these shows don’t introduce much new science material.
