Scientists are involved in so many areas of entertainment.
From lighting designers and construction managers on a theatre set, to sound and electrical engineers at music concerts and festivals, and it doesn’t stop there.
You don’t even need to leave the house to see and hear the effects of their work on the television or radio! But is this an area that young people are interested in and would like to make a living from? This is what we are trying to find out in this month’s Hidden Science theme of Entertainment and Culture. The submitted questions will not only allow young people to consider the jobs involved, but will also go towards helping us to develop new content for the Future Morph website.
Last month, the theme was Nature and we had some great questions submitted, including:
• How will wildlife be affected by climate change?
• What’s being done to help save the coral reefs?
• How many species of animal are likely to become extinct in the next 100 years?
• How long will it be until polar bears are extinct?
• How can we slow down global warming?
• What is the main cause of coral reef degradation?
• How much is nature changed overall by human activity?
• Why do leaves change colour in autumn?
• How much weight can the average piece of Earth take before it will crumble?
• How can some plants grow in the dark when others need the sun?
If you would like to see the answers to these and the full list of questions for this and all of our other themes please visit the webpage on the Future Morph website.
If you would like to be involved in Hidden Science as a scientist answering questions please contact Holly Margerison.
The ‘Do Some Good’ app is free to download and tasks are designed not to take longer than 5 minutes. For more information on the app or to download it for yourself visit the website.
Hidden Science will be coming to an end after the last theme in July, so don’t miss out – get involved today!
