The Rough Science Show

Science is not explosions, foaming test tubes, and mad lab coats! It’s a way of asking questions about the world we live in. We can use it to look under the hood of the universe and see the purring motor inside.

In the Rough Science Show, science communicator Sean M Elliott tells the story of what science is all about. The show introduces critical thinking, examines science knowledge, and asks “So, what is this thing called science?”
