Dr. Paul Doherty and Dr. Eric Weygren discuss the most intriguing moon in the Solar System, Titan. Titan is veiled in a mysterious, dense, foggy atmosphere. Watch as the best teachers on the planet battle it out for the title of Iron Science Teacher. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity. Tee off with this week’s “secret” ingredient-golf balls! Join Exploratorium scientist Dr. Paul Doherty and Dr. Eric Wegryn as they discuss the rings of Saturn and show new images from Cassini. Watch as the best teachers on the planet battle it out for the title of Iron Science Teacher. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity. This week’s “secret” ingredient- carbohydrates! The Live @ cast and crew take a journey to our Nation's Capitol for a special politically-charged edition of Iron Science Teacher. The competitors must create a math or science activity that is politically correct and leaves no child behind. Dr. James Watson is the President of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and the co-discoverer of the double helix, for which he won a Nobel prize in physiology or medicine in 1962. Dr. Watson was also the first director of the Human Genome Project. He talks with us about early discoveries in molecular biology, the Human Genome Project, and what makes Cold Spring Harbor a unique scientific institution. Dr. Sydney Brenner won the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine in 2002 for his work with the tiny nematode, C. elegans. Dr. Brenner recruited the one-millimeter worm in the early sixties as the ideal model organism to study cell differentiation and organ development. In this program, he describes how new model organisms are established for studying basic physiology, recounts his reaction to seeing Watson and Crick's DNA model for the first time, and offers advice to young scientists just starting out. In the Exploratorium Live@ studio, we welcome Dr. Karen Kalumuk, who will talk about life in extreme conditions. Exploratorium staff member Mary Miller is joined by Craig Dunne, a technician at McMurdo Station, to talk about extreme conditions. Watch as the best teachers on the planet battle it out for the title of Iron Science Teacher. This special edition will pit east coast teachers from Columbia University against teachers from the Exploratorium's Teacher's Institute. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity from a "secret" ingredient: milk cartons!
