New video: a history of the evolution of biodiversity



Over the past year, I have worked on writing, producing and hosting a video production on the timescale of the evolution of biodiversity on earth and the relatively recent appearance of humans on the scene, in collaboration with Dr. Ian Clark and Maverix Productions. This video is meant to act both as a standalone informal learning device to explain the space and time dimensions of the evolution of biodiversity on earth but also to act as a teaching resource inline with public and high school curriculum, in which science teachers can integrate the studies of biology, geology, chemistry and physics using a ubiquitous template at schools around the country (and the world), the running track…. All while taking the learning experience outside of the classroom.

Have a look below and please let us know what you think!

    Thank you for this fantastic video! I would love to see several more using the runner track to explain chemistry, physics, and geology.
    I would also be willing to help. My background includes a degree in the biological sciences and I also coordinate a youth track and field program in Bismarck North Dakota.

    Thank you, Steve

    Hi Steve
    thanks for your comments. This was originally meant to be a pilot and that several episodes were planned to teach chemistry, geology etc. but we never got the funding to make the shows happen
