MIT's Science Out Loud
Science Out Loud is an original web series hosted and co-written by MIT students on everything from the physics of skydiving to knitting a Mobius scarf (Grades 9-12).
The Mars One initiative plans to establish a permanent settlement on Mars in 2023 and is looking for future astronauts. No experience necessary. But there is a catch; this trip is one way only. The documentary interviews aspiring astronauts from Germany, America, Brazil, and Belgium as they talk about what motivates them to consider leaving their parents, children, and loved ones behind for a mission they cannot refuse.
Down in the village square, everyone is scratching themselves. What exactly happened last night after the rain? Hanna and Olli lead the investigation with some help from Suzie the spider. Part of the "My Little Planet" series.
Olli cannot understand why a light is turned off when it is not needed, since it is so easy to flick the switch. Thanks to Suzie, the children get to meet "Power," who can indeed create ample electricity. They also learn a lesson about conservation and natural resources. Part of the "My Little Planet" series.
Hanna and Olli feel sad and disappointed when they find out a small neighborhood park is being dug up to make way for a parking lot. They visit it one last time, and an old oak tree unexpectedly gives them some hope for the future. Part of the "My Little Planet" series.
Poor Suzie is seriously ill. Only a rare plant and the help of the Great Duke Owl can save her. Hanna and Olli fly off with the bird magician in search of the herbal remedy. Part of the "My Little Planet" series.
