This has got nothing particularly to do with Zoology, but it really is worth watching. You think chalk-and-talk lectures are boring? Here’s an example of how they did things in the 1970s. A group of hip lecturers in California (where else?) decided to teach protein synthesis by getting their students to dance it… The first 2-3 minutes have a straightforward account of the process by a chap in a tie and a NASA haircut (turns out he’s Paul Berg, 1980 Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry). Then it gets interesting, with loads of students who could be your grandparents romping about to some rather cool music. Looks like everyone had a whale of a time. Do you think we should try something similar?
And if that reminds you of this Fatboy Slim video, I suspect it’s probably not a coincidence.
