Want the complex made clear? Dr. Bob can help. He is the William & Elsie Prentice Professor of Biology at Wheaton College in Norton Massachusetts, visiting scientist at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, host of the Science with Dr. Bob! YouTube channel and cable access TV show, host of Family Science Nights at the MMAS theater, and enthusiastic presenter on science to all audiences.
The natural world is breathtaking in its beauty and complexity. Having an engaging and knowledgeable guide can make the daunting doable and the mysterious knowable. Whether your goal is to learn about science yourself, or to convey a scientific message to a "non-science" audience, Dr. Bob can tell that scientific story in a clear, creative, and memorable way.
We are all scientists! We wonder, we test, we consider, we conclude, and we share. Science is our best path to understanding the natural world around us. To learn more, use the "Experiments!" pull-down menu above, and let's do an experiment!
In his first episode of the "Science with Dr. Bob" show on Mansfield Cable Access, Dr. Bob tries some surprising experiments to show that we all use the same scientific method to figure out the world around us.
Dr. Bob and his student, Sarah King, talk with Joy Hallowell about the exciting science to be seen at the upcoming Family Science Night event at the MDI Biological Laboratory, and Dr. Bob tells the story of his first visit to Family Science Night visit just a few decades back. Aired July 13, 2017.
See "The Scientific Method" - Dr. Bob tries a LOUD experiment to demonstrate how the scientific method can provide a reliable and verifiable understanding of the world around us.
See "Sounds on Fire" - Dr. Bob shows how the effects of sound can be seen with a Rubens Tube on fire!
See "Wind Instruments Everywhere" - Dr. Bob shows how, with the right input, many household objects can become musical instruments!
See "Evidence for Greenhouse Effect" - Dr. Bob runs a simple experiment you can do yourself to show how the greenhouse effect works.
See "Climate Change and Ocean Acidification" - Dr. Bob shows how carbon dioxide added to an atmosphere quickly dissolves in water, making the water more acidic: an extra danger of climate change.
