How to Use these Videos

When scientists explore, observe, test, and analyze the world around us, how do they approach questions? How do the Science Senses help us to understand our universe and make decisions?

These videos answer these questions by way of introducing students to a selection of cutting-edge topics in scientific research. After watching these videos, students will come to class with a wider range of basic questions, primed for discussion. The videos are meant to enhance classroom instruction – not replace it – by engaging students’ sense of curiosity and stimulating activity.

This means you are free to use, share, and adapt them for any non-commercial purpose, as long as you cite Science Forward, CUNY as the source (a link to this site would be appreciated) and share them with others in the same way.

We hope you’ll use them! If you do, please let us know with a quick message to us. Even better, if you have ideas, strategies, questions or thoughts, share them in our Forum. And don’t forget, each video comes with ideas for readings and in-class activities.
