Physicist Speaks to Graduating Class


After my friend Shawn Carlson finished a Ph.D. in physics, he became dedicated to involving people of all ages in all areas of science. In more recent years he has focused on a younger audience with his Labrats Science Education Program. In this TEDx video he talks about the important role of science in people’s lives, including the lives of those who never take another science course after high school. Because of the training it provides in not fooling ourselves, it helps us all to develop the valuable life skill of abandoning cherished beliefs in the face of (often unwelcome) evidence.
