Science Is Great

RTE needs to get its finger out and make a popular and interesting children's science programme to help encourage interest n it at an early age, and help secure the future of our economy, which of course is based on science and technology.

With more competition than ever around the world, this is more important than ever e.g. China has just produced a stealth fighter.

3-2-1 Contact was Sesame Street for science on PBS( america's underwatched public service channel) in America. It was also part on my childhood, when shown on RTE.

For kids, like I was, who want to know why? why? why? about the world all the time...

I had a dream not too long ago where they brought back 3-2-1 Contact and I was a presenter for the show. When I get done here and get back to America, I'll totally see about reviving it and be plastered all over PBS. I already donate every 6 months to PBS. That channel was my life (when I had TV).

Oh, I'm very passionate about anything relating to PBS. I beg my friends to pledge to them, even if it's just $10.

This was one of my favourite shows as a kid on PBS. It taught a lot of critical thinking, brainstorming, estimation, rudimentary data analysis, and other quantitative techniques to apply toward math, science, and social sciences.



Saved my ass many a day. And it's also super 70's and trippy. Although it's creepy to see all the US states and Canadian provinces suddenly becoming Republican.

This link brings you to a video that shows a wonderful reconstruction of an ancient computer using lego blocks.

2,000 year old computer reconstructed in Lego

WE DON’T MIND patting ourselves on the back nowadays for our advances in science and technology – and that’s fair enough – but it’s sometimes all too easy to forget the level of sophistication our ancestors displayed in engineering and mathematics.
Few artifacts serve as so strong a reminder of the sophistication of our predecessors as the Antikythera mechanism; an artifact fished out of an ancient shipwreck by spongedivers off the Greek mainland at the turn of the last century.
For almost a century the significance of the mechanism was not fully understood, until – at last – science historians realised the artifact was nothing less than a complex 2,000 year old analogue computer, designed to calculate astronomical positions with near-perfect accuracy.
All in all, a pretty good find from 100 BCE.
The actual Antikythera mechanism is displayed the National Archaeological Museum in Athens, so your chances of having a poke at it are minimal. However Andrew Carol thankfully decided to have a crack at building a mechanism that reproduces the algorithm out of Lego – with very impressive results: Using all plastic gears, Carol’s creation predicts the year, date, and time of future solar and lunar eclipses accurately to within two hours.
(Warning: Watching video below may cause doubt over the superiority of one’s own Lego techniques.)

Yes, Science is great!

My science and maths teacher realle made it interesting.
But I was too busy losing myself in his eyes to remember anything now.

Science is really all down to luck anything of great scientific importance has been found by luck, like antibiotics. And I say this as a scientist.

That is true but I think you can increase your chances of discovering things by conducting the right research and applying some intelligence to the situation.

To a lego construction? I don't think so.
