Brian Koberlein has an amazing ability to present difficult concepts in a way that most of us can understand (check out his profile). In addition to being a co-curator for the Science on Google+ community and the Science on Google+: A Public Database page, Brian has also been working on a project to help spread scientific knowledge to young children. Prove Your World looks like a great project and I can’t wait to watch some of the episodes with my children! Check it out. If you can’t make a contribution, you can help by spreading the word!

If you’ve been following my posts for a while, you’ve occasionally heard me mention a project I’m a part of known as Prove Your World. Prove Your World is a project to present scientific concepts to kids in a way that demonstrates the process of scientific understanding. The long term goal is to create a television show for 8 – 13 year olds. One that demonstrates scientific thinking, features scientists as real people not stereotypes, and that empowers children to explore their world.
But for now we want to create a series of science webisodes that are fun, goofy, attention-grabbing, whimsical, inspiring, and useful. So we’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $10,000 for the series. We think the webisodes will show just how good the TV series could be.
To that end, I’m asking for your help. If you’d like to contribute, that would be cool. But we also need help to spread the word. So Tell your friends, neighbors, and random passers by. And tell your Google+ communities as well. Every +1, and share helps.
I think this project is pretty awesome. Now it’s time for us to prove it.
