I found Meg on twitter (was answering her question about how the science communication community feels about Up-Goer Five). I went on to visit her blog and was instantly in love with it! She makes videos about how scientific discoveries were made – through demonstrations, through debates between scientists, through serendipitous decisions made, and through animal research (this is such a sensitive topic, but the way she brought this up was really nice – I don’t think I could have done it better myself). She lists her sources very clearly for each video, and often refers to historical documents and images. A poster is made based on each video (or the other way around actually…you will know what I mean when you see the videos) so that you can take your time reading through all the little notes she made. The scripts for the videos are written in a very friendly and approachable tone so it feels like you are listening to Meg telling stories.
Really encourage everyone to visit her blog and follow her on twitter. You can find her second video on discovering the cause of scurvy at the end of this post.
