Ever wonder about this confusing science stuff?

I hear ya.

In the award-winning show i Think i Can, the class science teacher Miss McColl (hilariously played by Melody Johnson) energizes her students with her passion for physics and discovery and challenges them to win First Prize at this year’s Science Fair.

But what the heck IS a black hole? What does photosynthesis even mean? And who really cares about electromagnetic energy anyway? A quick Wikipedia summary:

  1. BLACK HOLES: A black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape.“Hyperbolic orbits following an inverse-square gravitational force field…”
  2. PHOTOSYNTHESIS: A process that converts carbon dioxide into organic compounds, especially sugars, using the energy from sunlight. The process plants use to grow from sunlight.
  3. ELECTROMAGNETIC COILS: is formed when a conductor (usually an insulated solid copper wire) is wound around a core or form to create an inductor or electromagnet.

“Science, Science, SCIENCE! And today in SCIENCE, we’ll study the laws of motion. Oh, the laws of motion are my favourite notion…” – Miriam McColl

Now get to science class. And if you can’t get to class, go watch i Think i Can and see how we TAP into E=mc2!
