science is cool

Science is not all about the books. It can be cool, filled new and creative, fun ideas.
This blurb for Mitochondria video by Michelle Bell can be applied to all of ChloroFilms, a collection of “videos illustrating the remarkable aspects of plant life”. Don’t dismiss it as stuff for (or by) undergraduates: for example, The Science of Cool by Sharon Robinson is an overview of her original research in Antarctic mosses. My favourites are La Bloomba by Kris Holmes and The Fastest Flights in Nature by Hayley Kilroy.


  1. I would love to get the lyrics for the Mitochondria video by Michelle Bell, it's amazing.

  2. Unfortunately I don’t know how to find the author. Mitochondria is the only video uploaded by the YouTube user - try to contact her?
