I am a big science geek. When I was younger, I loved watching NOVA. Now I am all grown up, I still love NOVA, watch Scientific American Frontiers with Alan Alda, and listen to NPR’s Science Friday.
When looking for music for my kids, I naturally gravitated toward those about science.
Here Comes Science is one of the best music CDs about science, by none other than They Might Be Giants. I played in the car for the first time for my two boys, they both loved the songs. With titles like “I Am A Paleontologist” or “How Many Planets”, I was drawn to the music myself.
For those who are fans of the Big Bang Theory, I am certain that you’d agree with me that the theme song by Barenaked Ladies is by far the best song about Science, ever!
Our whole universe was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started–Wait!
The Earth began to cool,
The autotrophs began to drool,
Neanderthals developed tools,
We built a wall (we built the pyramids),
Math, science, history,
Unraveling the mystery,
That all started with the Big Bang! BANG!
