Vlogbrother Hank Green Launches Science Channel as One of YouTube's
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/12 --
SciShow (www.youtube.com/scishow) officially launches today as one of YouTube's Original Programming Channels. SciShow will teach scientific concepts in an accessible and easy-to-understand manner, and will provide much more depth on subject matters than traditional television news programs. Noted YouTube personality Hank Green will be executive producer of the new educational channel.
SciShow will seek to increase the level of excitement about and understanding of science in the world at-large. SciShow will air four weekly episodes through 2012, delivered in short, three-minute segments, as well as longer ten-minute episodes, with up-to-the minute news and interviews on subjects ranging from particle physics to DNA. The first episode is about "non-newtonian fluids," and the second episode will focus on the Higgs Boson (tune in to find out what the "Higgs Boson" is) and includes interviews with the director general of the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
"The internet has already revolutionized entertainment, however I think we need bigger goals," said Green. "SciShow and other channels like it are working to evolve education by changing the way we teach to fit the needs of a new generation of learners and by using tools that are now at our disposal."
