Is this Monday not quite giving you the results you were hoping for? Cheer up with a few science music videos.
This one, “Bad Project”, is being emailed around rapidly among scientists worldwide, so there’s a good chance you’ve already seen it. If not, it’s worth a watch for the costumes (made of lab supplies!) and dance moves alone.
The next video is a bit older, but a lot more positive about research, and an ode to a famous evo devo model organism.
Both videos were products of departmental science variety shows or contests. “Bad Project” was a submission for a Molecular and Human Genetics Retreat 2011 at Baylor College of Medicine, and “Bringin’ Stickleback” was a submission for the 2009 “MCB Follies” at the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley).
Have any of you ever made a video (music or otherwise) with or in your labs? Would you like to? (Asking for a reason, so please do share your thoughts. I’m looking at you, students and postdocs. You there, with your eye on the lab timer, reading the Node while waiting for your experiments… Have you ever filmed something in your lab?)
